This model supports Darwin’s theory for many reasons. According to Darwin’s theory in this experiment, kidney beans were more likely to survive as it camouflaged with pinto beans. This was clearly seen as the levels of kidney beans at the end of generation 1 and till the start of generation 6 kept increasing, and the lima beans kept decreasing. Secondly, the kidney beans were red and camouflaged better with the pinto beans which were brown.

Also, this supports Darwin’s theory as Darwin said, those individuals with heritable traits better suited to the environment
