We share the earth with a wide variety of animal species, each of which brings something special to the diversity of the planet. By knowing more about how animals behave and live, we gain a greater understanding of how life evolved and the importance of biodiversity.
"Domestication" investigates the animal behavioural trait with which we are most familiar - how various species of animals have, over the last few millennia, become useful members of human societies. Each chapter examines a particular type of domestication, and includes an account of an example species that examines their biology, their domestication history, the results of domestication on their shape, size, colour and physiology, and their behaviour before and after domestication.
"This fascinating view of animal development will serve high school, public and academic libraries." -
