How to Tame a Fox ... and Build a Dog

Prof. Dr. Lee Alan Dugatkin, Professor of Biology and Distinguished University Scholar, University of Louisville (USA)

Imagine speeding up thousands of years of evolution into a few decades.... Based on his hugely popular book “How to Tame a Fox (and Build a Dog)”, Lee Alan Dugatkin takes us on an astonishing journey of jump-started evolution: In Siberia, a pair of visionary scientists turn a small population of wild foxes into friendly creatures with wagging tails – recreating the evolution of wolves into dogs and allowing us to witness, in real time, the process of domestication.
