How the 'street pigeon' got its fancy on

How the 'street pigeon' got its fancy on | Random | Scoop.it

“Pigeons come in all colors, shapes, and sizes. Some have feathers reaching up over their heads like a hood. Others have feathers all the way to the tips of their toes or fanned out on their tails like tiny turkeys.”"Most people think of pigeons as rats of the sky, but domestic pigeon breeds are wonderfully diverse," said Michael Shapiro of the University of Utah. "There are over 350 breeds that differ in color and color pattern, body size, beak size and shape, skeletal structure, posture, feather placement, and behavior. Our goal is to track down the DNA-level changes that control some of these interesting differences among breeds."In fact, it's fair to say that pigeons are more diverse than any other bird species out there. In the new study, genetic comparisons of 361 individuals representing 70 domestic pigeon breeds and two free-living populations yielded some surprises.In many cases, species with similarly bold traits are indeed closely related. But in other instances that isn't so. That means some of the pigeons' distinct characteristics may have arisen more than once on different branches of the birds' family tree or spread from one branch to another through interbreeding.Shapiro's team also found that two feral pigeon populations -- one in Salt Lake City and another in Scotland -- have mixed with racing breeds, such that they are now genetically very similar to those used in competitions around the world.All those pigeon breeds wouldn't exist but for the hard work and careful breeding of pigeon fanciers around the world over thousands of years, Shapiro says. Modern breeds are frequently described as having origins in England, Germany, Belgium, or elsewhere in Europe, but their progenitors were probably brought there from afar by traders or colonialists, the researchers write. Indeed, the new work traces the geographic origin of some breed groups to India and the Middle East.The story of the pigeon is a lot like that of the familiar family dog, Shapiro notes. It's also one that holds a very special place in the history of modern evolutionary thought. Charles Darwin himself was a real pigeon aficionado, relying heavily on artificial selection in pigeons to describe how natural selection works in the wild. In his classic book The Origin of Species, many pages are dedicated to the pigeon.As for the future, the researchers say that studies of pigeons might also help to explain variation among wild birds and perhaps other animals as well."The striking differences we see between breeds within this single species are characteristic of the types of differences we typically see between species," Shapiro said. "Our hope is that by understanding the genes that control pigeon diversity, we'll have a great starting point to understand diversity in the wild."
