    The domestication of animals and plants was triggered by the climatic and environmental changes that occurred after the peak of the Last Glacial Maximum aro years ago and which continue to this present day. These changes made obtaining food difficult. The first domesticate was the wolf (Canis lupus) at le years Younger Dryas that . The history of agriculture records the domestication of plants and animals and the development and dissemination of techniques for raising them productively. Agriculture began independently in different parts of the globe, and included a diverse range of least eleven separate regions of the Old and New World were involved as independent centers of origin. The origin of agriculture is one of the defining events of human history. Some , years ago bands of hunter-gatherers started to abandon their high-mobility lifestyles in favour of growing crops, and the creation of settled, sedentary communities.

The domestication of plants is one of the first and most crucial steps in the development of a full-fledged, reliable agricultural successfully feed a society using plants, the first humans had to continually work to improve their yield in quality and quantity.

Plant domestication arose as an approach to growing and harvesting more effectively. Domestication of Plants in the Old World The origin and spread of domesticated plants in Southwest Asia, Europe, and the Mediterranean Basin.

Fourth Edition. Daniel Zohary, Maria Hopf, and Ehud Weiss. A comprehensive review of the origin and the spread of domesticated plants in southwest Asia, Europe, and North Africa. The studies of the origin of different cultivated plants led Vavilov to the establishment of new concepts, i.e. primary and more ancient crops in contrast to secondary ones, allowing him to characterize with good precision the centers where agriculture originated and the pathways along which it was dispersed.

In this study, to gain a better understanding of the origin and domestication of cultivated banana, we performed genetic analyses of 16 banana cultivars and 18 wild Musa accessions using two single copy nuclear genes: granule-bound starch synthase I (GBSS I or Waxy) and alcohol dehydrogenase 1 (Adh1).Cited by: Plants are considered domesticated when their life cycle, behavior, or appearance has been significantly altered as a result of being under artificial selection by humans for multiple generations (see the main article on domestication for more information).

Thousands of distinct plant species have been domesticated throughout human history. Cultivated banana is one of the earliest plants that were domesticated in the world. However, far less is known about the genomic structure and artificial selection of cultivated banana.

However, far less is known about the genomic structure and artificial selection of cultivated Cited by: 1. The book covers a wide range of studies on problems relative to the origin of cultivated rice, placing emphasis on ecological and genetical aspects.

Comparisons are made between two cultivated rice species, independently evolved in Asia and Africa from respective wild progenitors. Phenomena are observed during mixed planting and hybrids Edition: 1.

This is the case with early plants that produced starchy seeds such as maygrass, knotweed, and little barley. An over-abundance of seeds from a particular plant species may suggest that it is now being cultivated.

More obvious, however, are actual morphological changes seen in a plant that suggest domestication has occurred. Domestication. Centers of Origin of Cultivated Plants the geographic centers of the genetic diversity of cultivated plants.

The concept arose in connection with the need for new planting material in selecting and improving cultivated plant varieties.

It is based on Darwin’s belief in the existence of geographic centers of origin of biological species (On the Origin. Our oldest cultivated plants, such as wheat, still yield new varieties: our oldest domesticated animals are still capable of rapid improvement or modification.

As far as I am able to judge, after long attending to the subject, the conditions of life appear to act in two ways–directly on the whole organisation or on certain parts alone and in /5(9).

A center of origin (or center of diversity) is a geographical area where a group of organisms, either domesticated or wild, first developed its distinctive properties.

They are also considered centers of diversity. Centers of origin were first identified in by Nikolai Vavilov. Locating the origin of crop plants is basic to plant breeding. The domestication of plants was a signature technology initiated by humans during the transition from hunting–gathering to agriculture, about 12 years : Paul Gepts.

Chili pepper (Capsicum spp. L., and sometimes spelled chile or chilli) is a plant which was domesticated in the Americas at least 6, years spicy goodness spread into cuisines throughout the world only after Christopher Columbus landed in the Caribbean and took it back with him to Europe.

Peppers are widely considered the first spice to have been used by. Domestication: The birth of rice. the cultivated grass became stouter and straighter, producing heftier grains in greater quantities and that clung to the plant instead of tumbling to the soil Cited by: Cultivated plant taxonomy is the study of the theory and practice of the science that identifies, describes, classifies, and names cultigens—those plants whose origin or selection is primarily due to intentional human activity.

Cultivated plant taxonomists do, however, work with all kinds of plants in cultivation. Cultivated plant taxonomy is one part of the study of horticultural botany.
