Domesticated cat breeds are also unique in the fact that there are only 40–50 genetically distinct breeds while other domesticated animals can have anywhere from 65 to genetically distinct breeds.

Breeds of today. In only 5 cat breeds were recognized by an association in London. Darwin () used domestic animals as an example of “artificial” selection analogous to natural selection.

However, discoveries in the last hundred years have suggested other evolutionary mechanisms underlying the morphological and behavioral conformation of domesticated animals. We review the evolution of domestic animals, emphasizing the effect of the earliest steps of domestication on its course.

Using the first domesticated species, the dog (Canis familiaris), for illustration, we describe the evolutionary peculiarities during the historical domestication, such as the high level and wide range of suggest that the process of earliest domestication via.

Bringing together research from a range of fields including anthropology, archaeology, ecology.A unique fusion of art, science, and history, this book celebrates the th anniversary of Charles Darwin’s monumental work The Variation of Animals and Plants under Domestication, and is intended as a tribute to what Darwin might have achieved had he possessed that elusive missing piece to the evolutionary puzzle—the knowledge of how.

As Shipman points out, following Clutton-Brock (), domesticating animals is significantly different from domesticating plants as it requires shaping animal behaviour as well as morphology, learning to interact with the animal’s instincts and capacities: ‘Domesticating an animal is fundamentally developing a means of communication with that animal’ (Shipman ).

In contrast.
