Survival Advantage

Survival advantage refers to any factor in an organism's environment, health, or physical development that gives it a benefit or advantage that makes survival possible. For instance, living in a large area provides an animal an escape advantage. For plants, being poisonous or bad tasting makes it less likely that it will be eaten. For humans, physical dexterity and intellect has long provided a survival advantage over other organisms and other humans.
