Abstract

The domestication of wild species that sustained hunter-gatherers, as happened with cereals, is a prime example of cultural and ecological entanglement. As humans relied more on a narrower range of species for calories, the changes associated with their processing required them to engage in different behavioral patterns. In turn, the species themselves evolved characteristics that is, domestication traits, which further transformed human behavior. Eventually these changes made plants reliant on human management and propagation for reproduction, and likewise humans became more dependent on plants to maintain subsistence and cultural trajectories.
