Darwinian-theory meaning

Darwinian theory, proposed by Charles Darwin, is defined as a theory that suggests that organisms with the strongest and most desirable characteristics are best able to survive and reproduce.

An example of Darwinian theory is that if dogs that have a good sense of smell are better able to survive than dogs without a good sense of smell, then all dogs evolve to have a good sense of smell because those with a bad sense of smell die out.
