We have focused on natural populations from the northern range mountains of trinidad and the contrast between high‐ and low‐predation sites that was first described by haskins and colleagues (1961), then examined by endler (1978, 1980) in his study of effects of predators on evolution of color patterns in male guppies high‐predation.

It might be difficult to observe the evolution of long-lived animals such as tortoises, elephants and humans, but, as these three experiments show, fish, insects and other species with short generation times are ideal subjects for the study of natural selection in action.
