Multiple lines of evidence of early goose domestication in a 7,000-y-old rice cultivation village in the lower Yangtze River, China

Significance We studied goose bones from Tianluoshan—a 7,000-y-old rice cultivation village in the lower Yangtze River valley, China—using histological, geochemical, biochemical, and morphological

Unveiling new perspective of phylogeography, genetic diversity, and population dynamics of Southeast Asian and Pacific chickens

Analysis of mitochondrial DNA control region sequences revealed evidence of a new divergent matrilineage in haplogroup V, which exemplified dispersal patterns to the ISEA, and thereafter the island clade diversified as a distinct group.

Analysis of genome and methylation changes in Chinese indigenous chickens over time provides insight into species conservation

Chinese indigenous chickens, which belonged to the Tibetan, Wenchang and Bian chicken breeds, and have been conserved under different conservation programmes, are performed, it is observed that low genetic diversity and high DNA methylation variation occurs during ex situ in vivo conservation, while higher genetic Diversity and differentiation occurs during in situ conservation.

Questioning new answers regarding Holocene chicken domestication in China

It is asserted that chickens were domesticated on the North China plain 10,000 y ago, and a great deal remains unknown about the temporal and geographic origins of poultry husbandry.

The Variation of Animals and Plants under Domestication

This series offers not only works by Darwin, but also the writings of his mentors in Cambridge and elsewhere, and a survey of the impassioned scientific, philosophical and theological debates sparked by his ‘dangerous idea’.

Review of the oldest evidence of domestic fowl Gallus gallus f. domestica from the Czech Republic in its European context

The origin of domestic fowl in Central Europe, as well as rit- ual aspects and size are discussed together with detailed morphometric characterization.

Avian Remains from the Late Chalcolithic Settlement near Hotnitsa Village (Veliko Tarnovo Region, CN Bulgaria)

Fourteen bird bone remains (MNI=11), of 6 orders, 7 families and 8 species, dated ca. 7000 BP of Cygnus olor, Tetrao tetrix, Gallus gallus domestica, Gypaetus barbatus, Circus aeruginosus, Columba

Multiple maternal origins of chickens: out of the Asian jungles.

Chicken domestication: an updated perspective based on mitochondrial genomes

The assessment of chicken mtDNA data facilitated the understanding about the Austronesian settlement in the Pacific and revealed new complexities of history in chicken domestication because in the phylogeny lineages from the red junglefowl were mingled with those of the domestic chickens.

Reconstructing Asian faunal introductions to eastern Africa from multi-proxy biomolecular and archaeological datasets

Faunal remains from 22 eastern African sites are analysed and biomolecular techniques applied to confirm identifications of two Asian taxa: domestic chicken and black rat, supporting a late, mid-first millennium CE introduction of these species.
