Origins of Horticulture
Formation of agriculture communities and domesticated plants did not occur in many areas. China, Southeast Asia, Near East and Europe (all called Eurasia) communities were the most successful in domesticating plants. Large areas used for agriculture included the Fertile Crescent, Nile Delta, Andes to central Mexico and the western Mediterranean, which produced many of the domesticated plants as well as animals. India, central and southern Africa were successful in producing some agriculture plants. Australian aborigines, on the other hand, did not practice farming so there were no domesticated plant or animals from Australia.
