Expert Answer:

Natural selection appears in nature and has created species.These changes can take millions of years as species compete with each other, allowing some changes to survive and other changes to disappear.They have a better chance of survival and therefore are more likely to reproduce, passing on their beneficial adaptations.
Artificial selection is when humans choose a specific characteristic that they decide is desirable and they breed animals to enhance that trait.Organisms with the desired traits, such as size or taste, are artificially mated or cross-pollinated with organisms with similar desired traits.
