What Is the Difference between Selective Breeding and Cloning?

Answer

Selective (artificial) breeding involves selecting plants/animals with desirable characteristics and then breeding them. This process is carried out until offspring displaying the wanted characteristics are obtained. Whereas cloning involves copying the genotype containing the genetic (heritable) information which helps in increasing the production of superior traits.

1 Additional Answer
Cloning increases the frequency of superior production traits by copying the genotype containing the genetic information. Selective breeding is an artificial selection where people take control of the breeding process so that new varieties of various species can be produced.
