Discusses the history of the domestications of animals and examines the recent increase in the domestication of species, both familiar and unusual, brought about by the influence of technology on breeding practices.The dog shows more diversity than any other domesticated animal, and the years of control have even produced changes in voice; for barking is not well developed in wild dogs ... Cats have changed little in shape and size from their ancestors despite many years of domestication. Their changes have mainly been in coat and color, and have therefore not resulted in the great variety of breeds like the dog.
