|That was a very good book by Michael Pollan. *I think that's his name.... *It explained how humans are just like very large bees with different needs from well, bees. *Apples taste good so there propagated, tulips look good so there propagated, nepenthes look even better and control people so there propagated.[/QUOTE]|
Yes, yes, that's the author's name. Thanks for reminding me.
I'm pretty much in the camp that believes that selection = evolution. Some people call it co-evolution. Whatever it takes to maximize probability of staying in the gene pool is evolution IMO, including pleasing humans. Whether they like it or not, humans are part of their "environment".
Anyone see the Discovery Channel program called The Canine Conspiracy? That was another great of example this whole issue. Very fascinating topic.
Yeah, that's what I was talking about. It showed how man changed the evolution of wolves into dogs, right?
