• The act or fact of surviving, especially under adverse or unusual circumstances.
  • A person or thing that survives or endures, especially an ancient custom, observance, belief, or the like.

To remain alive after the death of someone, the cessation of something, or the occurrence of some event; continued to live.

“Survival of the fittest”, this is a phrase as away of describing the mechanism of natural selection.

  • Darwin’s theory of evolution by natural select is important in aiding modern biology. It talks widely of ideology about evolution on survival and genetically inheritable survival instincts.

Linking survival with the word able is apparent, as it falls under the ideas of “capable of, susceptible of, fit for, tending to, given to”.

“Principle by which each slight variation (of a trait), if useful, is preserved.”

Natural survival is the process in nature by which organisms better adapted to their environment tend to survival and reproduce more than those less adapted to their environment.

  • You can survive:
    • 3 minutes without air.
    • 3 hours without shelter.
    • 3 days without water.
    • 30 days without food.
