Domestication of sheep and goats

GlobalDiv posted a new newsletter, where the interesting information about the domestication of sheep and goats. I can not copy the relevant part here, but you can take a look at page 6. Basically it says that there probably was not a domestication bottleneck in sheep and goats as it probably occured in cattle. This might be also the reason, we have so much variability in sheep and goats today in comparison to cattle.
