Plant Domestication in Mesoamerica
Since 1985 Bruce Smith's research and writing has largely focused on the origins of agriculture, a major evolutionary transition in human history. Smith has documented the transition from hunting and gathering to food production in eastern North America (2006 ENA PNAS, 2009 Riverton), and reanalyzed early domesticated plant remains from Mesoamerica (1997 Ocampo Caves LAA, 1997 C. Pepo Science, 2005 Coxcatlan Cave PNAS).
