This chapter discusses experiments on animal domestication carried out by Dmitri Belyaev in 1958. Using silver black foxes (Vulpes vulpes) as subjects, Belyaev explored the role of the stress of the artificial selection regime in domestication. Belyaev believed that reconstructing the early steps of animal domestication could provide a better understanding of the behavioral transformations and the variability of morphological traits and physiological functions that emerge in the domestication process.

Keywords:   animal domestication, Dmitri Belyaev, artificial selection, domestication, behavioral transformations
