    Clonal Selection is the activation of the immune response cell with the complimentary antibodies to the pathogen.
    Clonal expansion is the expansion replication of the selected cells. (by mitosis)
    The overall theory is I believe synonymous. http://studentreader.com/clonal-expansion-theory/
