Example text

As mentioned previously, a very strong phylogeographical structure among wild boar was revealed using a phylogenetic tree, with a clear cline from East to West across the Old G. Larson et al. , 2005). However, while the western Eurasian and ISEA branches of that tree consisted of well-supported clades, the portion of the tree that comprised samples from the East Asian mainland was defined by a large polytomy of clades and individual branches. As a result (and because of the paucity of Chinese samples in the study) it was impossible to say much more beyond the fact that pig domestication had taken place, at some point in the past, somewhere in East Asia.

Five so-called wild specimens (based on their large size) from the same site possessed European haplotypes, suggesting that, though local farmers were herding pigs whose ancestors were in the Near East, they were hunting and eating G. Larson et al. local wild boar. The same Near Eastern haplotype was also identified in four specimens from the 8th millennium BP Linear Bandkeramik (LBK) site of Eilsleben in northern Germany, and in two samples from the mid Neolithic (very early 6th millennium BP Chasséen culture) site of Bercy in the Paris Basin.

2005) and from most LBK sites in central and western Europe (Tresset and Vigne, 2004), they increase in abundance (Tresset, 2003) and size (Tresset and Vigne, 2007) starting in the first part of the 7th millennium BP, well after the initial introduction of Near Eastern domestic pigs. There is also a clear increase in the frequency of physiological stress (as evinced by incremental defects in the dental enamel, known as enamel hypoplasia) between S. , 2004). Genetic Aspects of Pig Domestication Interestingly, the replacement of Near Eastern domestic pigs by European populations was not restricted to Europe.
