A Deeper Look At Domestication

The skull of the so-called Altai dog was found in Central Asia, estimated to be 32 - 36,000 years old.

Domestication describes the process of change or evolution within a wild species (referring to an animal or a plant). During this process, in terms of reproduction, certain individuals are being isolated from their wild counterparts. Therefore, through natural and artificial selection, an optimal genetic adaptation to the human environment occurs over time.
