      Natural selection is a cornerstone of modern biology. It is a key process in the evolution of a population. It acts on the phenotype, the characteristics of the organism which actually interact with the environment. While genotypes can slowly change by random genetic drift, natural selection remains the primary explanation for adaptive evolution. Darwin introduced the world to the theory of evolution by natural selection, which laid the foundation for how we understand the living world today.
