  • Overproduction
  • Varitation
  • Enviroment
  • With a multitude of predators nearby, like hawks and owls, a hummingbird with a dominant allele for a long beak and a hummingbird with a recessive allele for a short beak overproduce
  • Struggle
  • The offspring of the two hummingbirds either inherit a long beak or a short beak.
  • Selection
  • The environment of the hummingbirds consists of mostly flowers of which they drink the nectar out of.
  • Differential Reproduction
  • A hummingbird with a shorter beak can't reach as far into the flower to get the nectar out, so the short beaked hummingbirds struggle to survive.
  • The short beaked hummingbird population starts to die off, leaving only the long beaked birds.
  • The long beaked hummingbird population starts to reproduce, leaving the hummingbird population with only long beaked hummingbirds.
