Biology Graphs: Natural Selection

There are three types of natural selection. Each type of natural selection has very different consequences for the resulting populations. Directional natural selection causes a shift in the population toward the left or right on the graph. Stabilizing natural selection reduces the extremes in the population. Diversifying natural selection ultimately encourages the reduction of the intermediate numbers.
