Surprisingly Low Limits of Selection in Plant Domestication

Abstract

Current debate concerns the pace at which domesticated plants emerged from cultivated wild populations and how many genes were involved. Using an individual-based model, based on the assumptions of Haldane and Maynard Smith, respectively, we estimate that a surprisingly low number of 50-100 loci are the most that could be under selection in a cultivation… (More)
