Antibiotic resistant bacteria are an example of natural selection happening today, and, unfortunately, one that could have dire consequences. In your own words, discuss how natural selection works, and then discuss how the development of antibiotic resistant bacteria is an example of natural selection. Some other issues to consider include: what is antibiotic resistance and how does it develop? How does antibiotic resistance spread? What can we do in the future to stop the spread of already antibiotic resistant bacteria, as well as stop further bacteria strains from developing antibiotic resistance?
