|MadSci Network: Botany|
I am had a discussion with someone about the domesticated banana. He mention that banana somehow changed form over time from wild banana to to the domesticated banana that we have now. I told him that that's not true, the wild banana has cultivated that way, it has not changed by it self. He then went on to ask me "if it's done by humans then can you give me an example of how this is done?" I beleive what I said but I have no idea how this is done today or thousands of years ago by people less technologically advanced than us. Maybe I'm wrong, but if so please inform me or tell me how this could be done. Thank you in advance. P.S: It would be helpful if you could refer me to a credible source; I'd appreciated.
