The word “Natural Selection” was popularised by the famous English naturalist and geologist Charles Darwin in his influential 1859 book On the Origin of Species. It defines as a process whereby organisms with favourable traits are the ones who are more likely to reproduce. In doing so, they pass on these traits to the next generation. Overtime these traits which have been passed on to the next generations allow organisms to adapt to that environment because of the frequency of genes favouring that trait increases in that given population.
