wild cabbage artificial selection
Asked by Ratnesh | 31st Dec, 2016, 12:47: PM
Artificial selection is the process in which human preferences have a significant effect on the evolution of a particular species.
Cabbage was produced by selecting a short petiole. Broccoli was developed by selecting the arrested flower development of wild cabbage. Another variety, cauliflower, was developed by selecting sterile flowers in the wild cabbage plant. Selection of swollen parts of wild cabbage led to the evolution of yet another variety known as kohlrabi. Similarly, kale was developed by selecting large leaves.
