principle 2: Overproduction and Struggle to Survive
principle 3: Differential Survival and Reproduction (survival of the fitness)
The long trunk elephants and short trunk elephants have different adaptations when it comes to individual fitness. For example, the long trunk elephants have a better chance of getting food from trees than short trunk elephants. So that means that the population will have more long trunk elephants than short trunk.
principle 4: Change in the Gene Pool
According to the information that i have received, since the elephants eat plants from trees the elephants with long trunks can reach the plants than the other elephants that can. The population will have more long trunks and the other elephants they will have less populations of one of them
Organism: Elephants Environment: Africa Trait selected for: Long trunks and Short trunks Adaptation Type: Physical
The differential of the reproduction is that the population will have less short trunk elephants because of the types of food they eat and cant reach. Than the elephants with more population will have more long trunk elephants.

As you can see the short trunk elephants will not survive do to that they cant reach to get enough food. While the long trunk is out there creating more population for its kind.
