boss is a plant breeder who asks you to develop a sweeter variety of
apple. Based on your observations from the lab, how would you use
artificial selection to achieve this goal? How might natural selection
produce the same result? Which process would occur faster?
Thank you for the opportunity to help you with your question!
a)Choose apples with sweet taste and breed or crossbreed them to give rise to the offspring of the desirable traits(Sweet taste) . This traits will be passed over.
b) Farmers are more likely to grow and cross breed sweeter varieties of apple, with improved management. Those that are less sweet are most likely to be neglected. With time sweet apple increase in number while the less sweet apple decrease ,even up to extinction
c)Artificial selection occurs faster since it is tightly controlled in the lab with the aid of technology
