Natural selection
What does the theory say? It says that natural selection is the fuel of evolution. This can be explained in the following steps:
1) A mutation occurs in a population.
2) This mutation gives this animal a greater chance of survival.
3) This allows the animal to reproduce more that also have this characteristic.
4) There are more animals that have this characteristic.
