And an organism is “best suited” to a particular environment if the survival rates for its members have increased. So if you’re in a place where you’re at a higher risk of certain diseases, or an environment with a high risk of being attacked by predators, or a place where you’re more likely to be in large groups, then you’re more likely to survive and be best-suited to thrive. And in asexual reproduction, you only have one sex.
In the case of organisms, or any type of animal, the fact that they can reproduce only once allows them to be best-suited for one particular habitat. Asexual reproduction is when the offspring of one organism gets sex. In asexual reproduction, there is no sex, so the offspring of the same organism gets the same sex (or the same genetic makeup).
In short, organisms that have best-suited for life in a particular environment are more likely to survive, thrive, and spread in that environment, and thus are more likely to be selected for when it’s needed. This is called the reproductive advantage.
This is why animals that have high fertility rates when given the opportunity are more successful in their reproductive lives. It’s also why some of the most successful organisms in the world are those that are the best-suited for particular environments. When conditions are right for an organism, it is likely it will be able to flourish and survive, or even thrive.
There is a lot of evidence that suggests the reproductive advantage has a lot to do with a variety of factors. It’s been shown for instance that the reproductive advantage is positively correlated with better food, access to water, and a better chance to survive than any other advantage (a.k.a. other advantages) that a species can have.
We know that the reproductive advantage is directly related to a variety of factors, including having the proper environment and conditions. But how exactly does this affect the evolution of an organism? In this case, the answer is that it helps an organism survive.
The factors that influence reproductive success may be the same as those that influence survival, but the effect is not the same.
To quote an animal scientist, it’s no longer enough to know the factors influencing the reproductive advantage. We also need to know the factors influencing survival.
This is one of the biggest problems with studying evolution. There are all sorts of factors that determine survival and that affect reproduction. There’s all sorts of factors determining survival, but the ones that affect reproduction are far less obvious. So, we actually need to look at survival, but not reproduction.
