Decembre 12, 2020 - How man has domesticated plants (in Fench)
Since the beginnings of agriculture about 10,000 years ago, man has selected plants best suited to his needs, for food, heating, clothing and medicine. The domestication of plants and also animals has had an enormous impact on the rise of civilizations. Selection was unintentional at the beginning and increasingly conscious over time. Since the ancestral species, how has man modified plants and with what impact on civilizations? And in the years to come, what prospects do genetic manipulation technologies open up in the face of climate change?
The presentation starts at 6'15
