Feralization: confronting the complexity of domestication and evolution.

Abstract

Feral populations, those which successfully persist outside of cultivation or husbandry, provide unique opportunities to study the genomic impacts of domestication and local adaptation. We argue that by leveraging genomic resources designed for domestic counterparts, powerful phylogenetic and population genomic data collection and analyses can be designed to disentangle complex demographic processes.
