Domestication - Wildlife

It means that man has taken under his direct care the living beings which are useful to him. Through extensive breeding programmes, he has modified them to derive maximum benefit of their products. During the process, the species have lost certain useful characteristics so much so that these forms cannot survive on their own in nature. As very good example is corn, which is pampered so much by man that if it is left on its own, it cannot survive.
