The evolution of beauty

Beauty is in the eye of the beholder, and your selection of mates for your offspring is an important, independent agent in evolution. By selecting mates of the same species, you provide your descendants with the best genetic material. But what about all those beautiful women and men. How do we know what kind of person does or will produce the most successful offspring. Mating systems have been with us for millions of years and have evolved to suit the needs of species that have a need for genetic material. They can take many forms such as the peacocks tail, or the peacocks tail and tail fluff, or the peacocks tail and tail, or even the peacocks tail and tail fluff. Each mating system has its own challenges and pros and cons, and they are all subject to genetic drift. Evolutionary biology does not attempt to explain each mating system, but simply assesses the pros and cons of each mating system as a whole. Here in the Americas, the most striking characteristic of human mating systems is the size of the head of the male, especially the height of the male. This height difference, and associated head size variation in men compared to women, is a manifestation of the evolutionary mechanism of sexual selection. Sexual selection is a form of natural selection, since the sexual selection of mates is a way of regulating population growth by selecting mates of the right size. Sex is a highly effective way to communicate a males genes to the next generation. In this regard it is similar to the way that males of some bird species mark their territory and attract the attention of possible mates using songs. Natural selection works under the following three conditions:, 1, it is not beneficial for the individual to be in a different population than that in which he can reproduce;, 2, there are no alternative selective pressures operating; and, 3, no two individuals are the exact same. There are no good reasons to change the conditions of nature to suit human ideas of what is right or natural or desirable. Evolutionary biology does not suggest that we should use sexual selection as a way of regulating human population growth, as this is not a solution to human problems in the 21st century. On the contrary, sexual selection is a poor mechanism for human social problems because it has so many complex problems to work out. This evolutionary theory of beauty and mating suggests alternative social solutions. Mating systems can be reformed and modified in ways that.
