  • Natural Selection: Peafowls(a short explanation)
  • In a population of peacocks, there is an overproduction and variation within the species as the size, and brightness of the male peacock's tail feathers are different but play a vital role in understanding sexual selection
  • In order for a male peacock to reproduce, it must attract peahens using its tail feathers. The environment and peahens favor the peacocks with the biggest and brightest tail feathers.
  • That's me!
  • The male peacocks with the brightest and largest tail feathers are chosen and mate passing this gene onto their offspring.
  • The male peacocks without big and bright tail feathers die off and don’t reproduce.
  • Eventually, all male peacocks will have big and bright tails, causing the species of peacocks to change unless they all die before reproducing
