The influences of progenitor filtering, domestication selection and the boundaries of nature on the domestication of grain crops

Lucas Alejandro Garibaldi, Marcelo Aizen, Agustin Saez, Gabriela Gleiser, Marina Strelin & Lawrence Harder
1. Domestication generally involves two sequential processes: initial identification of wild species with desirable characteristics (“progenitor filtering”); and subsequent artificial and natural selection that respectively improve features preferred by humans and adapt species to cultivation/captivity (“domestication selection”). Consequently, domesticated species can differ from wild species and may share characteristics owing to convergent evolution (“domestication syndrome”). Baring evolutionary constraints, domestication selection may generate extreme phenotypes that transcend the “boundaries of nature” evident for wild species. Despite...
