Prelude to the Anthropocene: Two new North American Land Mammal Ages (NALMAs)
Human impacts have left and are leaving distinctive imprints in the geological record. Here we show that in North America, the human-caused changes evident in the mammalian fossil record since c.
mtDNA Data Indicate a Single Origin for Dogs South of Yangtze River, Less Than 16,300 Years Ago, from Numerous Wolves
Results indicate that the domestic dog originated in southern China less than 16,300 ya, from several hundred wolves, suggesting that the dogs may have originated among sedentary hunter-gatherers or early farmers, and the numerous founders indicate that wolf taming was an important culture trait.

A refined proposal for the origin of dogs: the case study of Gnirshöhle, a Magdalenian cave site
It is proposed that both domestication and the existence of a specialized wolf ecomorph are highly probable, due to their proximity to humans and a restricted diet, and domestication as the most likely scenario explaining the patterns observed herein.
Did Dog Domestication Contribute to Language Evolution?
This work hypothesizes about a parallel domestication of humans and dogs, and more specifically, about a positive effect of the authors' interaction with dogs on human self-domestication, and ultimately, on aspects of language evolution, through the mechanisms involved in the control of aggression.
The Iron Age Dogs from Alaybeyi Höyük, Eastern Anatolia
A zooarchaeological study of an assemblage of 143 Iron Age dog bones, including two dog skeletons, unearthed from the 2016 and 2017 salvage excavations at Alaybeyi Höyük, Eastern Anatolia, reflects both the morphological and biological status of Alaysbeyi dogs, as well as the Alay Abbeyi people’s attitudes toward dogs, adding vital information to the very limited archaeological knowledge of dogs in Anatolia.
