The idea is that the evolution of the dog was not just a matter of artificial selection. It was at least as much a case of wolves adapting to the ways of man by natural selection. Much of the initial domestication of the dog was self-domestication, mediated by natural, not artificial, selection.

Real wolves are pack hunters. Village dogs are scavengers; wolves scavenge too, but they are not temperamentally suited to scavenging human rubbish because of their long 'flight distance'. If you see an animal feeding, you can measure its flight distance by seeing how close it will let you approach before fleeing. For any given species in any given situation, there will be an optimal flight distance, somewhere between too risky or foolhardy at the short end, and too flighty or risk-averse at the long end. Individuals that take off too late when danger threatens are more likely to be killed by that very danger. Individuals that are too flighty never get a square meal, because they run away at the first hint of danger on the horizon.

Natural selection will work on the flight distance, moving it one way or the other along the continuum if conditions change over evolutionary time. If a plenteous new food source in the form of village rubbish dumps enters the world of wolves that is going to shift the optimum point towards the shorter end of the flight distance continuum.

Decreasing flight distance is a behavioral measure of what might be called increasing tameness. At this early stage, the only interactions between humans and these incipient dogs were hostile. If wolves were becoming domesticated it was by self-domestication, not deliberate domestication by people.

Wild foxes are tricky to handle, and the Russian geneticist Belyaev set out deliberately to breed for tameness. Belyaev and his colleagues subjected fox cubs to standardized tests in which an experimenter would offer a cub food by hand, while trying to stroke or fondle it. The cubs were classified into three classes. Class III cubs were those that fled from or bit the person. Class II cubs would allow themselves to be handled, but showed no positive responsiveness to the experimenters. Class I cubs, the tamest of all, positively approached the handlers, wagging their tails and whining. When the cubs grew up, the experimenters systematically bred only from this tamest class.

After 35 generations, the tame foxes not only behaved like domestic dogs, they looked like them. Their tails turned up at the end like a dog's, rather than down like a fox's brush. According to Belyaev, they even sounded like dogs. Those other dog-like characteristics seemingly rode on the evolutionary coat_tails of the genes for tameness. To geneticists, this is not surprising. They recognize a widespread phenomenon called 'pleiotropy', whereby genes have more than one effect, seemingly unconnected.

QUESTIONS

What behaviour would you expect of a tenth generation feral dog, that is a dog whose great10 ancestor was domesticated but escaped back to the forest?

A)

It would become more wolf-like.

B)

It would become more fox-like.

C)

It would behave like the quintessential village-dog.

D)

It would find new 'domestic' affiliations in the forest

question 2


Of the birds mentioned below, which would you expect to have the shortest 'flight distance'?

A)

Sparrow

B)

Humming bird

C)

Crow

D)

Eagle

Question 3


All of the following could be characteristics of the tamed foxes, except..

A)

They lost their foxy pelage and became piebald black and white

B)

Their foxy prick ears were replaced by doggy floppy ears.

C)

The females came on heat every six months like a bitch, instead of every year like a vixen.

D)

The color of the fur of the species, vulpes , which is red, changed to silver thereby increasing its value to the breeder

Question 


The passage helps answer all of the following questions to a student of evolutionary biology, EXCEPT

A)

How does a turned up tail help a dog become a better survivor?

B)

What is the role of the environment in evolution?

C)

Do scavengers have a better chance for survival compared to predators?

D)

What role has artificial selection played in the evolution of man?
