CARTA: Domestication and Human Evolution – Robert Wayne: The Transformation of Wolf to Dog: History, Traits, and Genetics

12/12/2014; 21 minutes

Robert Wayne (UCLA) presents a historical perspective on dog evolution in this talk. The timing and context of dog domestication is controversial. Wayne's findings place domestication at a time when humans were migratory hunter-gatherers and suggest that a unique domestication scenario applies to the dog, the only large carnivore ever domesticated.
