    Domesticated animals and plants have been changed genetically by captive breeding and artificial selection. Selective breeding allows animal and plant species to have the characteristics that are desirable for humans, such as tameness for animals, and beauty for ornamental plants and show animals, or larger fruits or seeds for food crops.
