Chapter 1 (Page no: 1)

Canid phylogeny and origin of the domestic dog.

This chapter discusses the evolutionary history of dogs and their relationship to other carnivores as inferred from molecular genetic studies. The chapter also address the mechanisms that may have been involved in the origin of modern breeds. Topics discussed are the evolutionary relationships of the domestic dog; origin of the domestic dog; and origin of dog breeds.
