Description

This article examines the domestication of animals and explores multiple avenues, by which wild animals became companions or of other uses to humans.

“There was a time when the species that now inhabit humans’ homes, fields, and barnyards didn’t exist. Then some people, somewhere, brought wild things under human control. Or the wild creatures exploited new ecological niches created by humans, gradually habituating themselves to people and, in essence, domesticating themselves. Both paths — scientists are still debating which was more likely for different animals — led to the creation of domesticated species or subspecies genetically distinct from their wild ancestors. Scientists studying evolution and human history want to know how ancient people domesticated animals and plants. What species did humans start with and where did it happen first? How long did it take? “

The article is 11 pages long, and from a science magazine published in 2019. The article is hyperlinked in the guide.
