How to use domestication in a sentence?

  1. William Taylor:

    Horse domestication was an absolute lightning strike in human history, leading to incredible, widespread, and lasting social transformations all across the ancient world, horses were an order of magnitude faster than many of the transport systems of prehistoric Eurasia, allowing people to travel, communicate, trade and raid across distances that would have previously been unthinkable.

  2. Greger Larson:

    Animal domestication is a rare thing and a lot of evidence is required to overturn the assumption that it happened just once in any species, our ancient DNA evidence, combined with the archaeological record of early dogs, suggests that we need to reconsider the number of times dogs were domesticated independently.

  3. Debasish Mridha, M.D.:

  4. Emily Bray:

    We know that adult dogs are good at these tasks, when does that start ? Does it take years of observing humans and living with humans, or is that ability something they are more biologically prepared for that has evolved over the course of domestication ?

  5. Laurent Frantz:

    Our data suggests that dogs were domesticated twice, on both sides of the Old World, this suggests that at least two group of humans independently came to the same conclusion: dogs can be domesticated. It also suggests that the process of domestication, while mostly rare, may be replicated more often than we think.
