Leonard Introduction Modern dog breeds demonstrate a stunning level of morphological and behavioural diversity. The magnitude of morphological differences between dog breeds is greater than that between all wild species in Canidae, the dog family (Wayne, 1986a, b). This diversity led Charles Darwin and Konrad Lorenz to speculate that perhaps dogs derived from more than one wild ancestral species. , 1987a, b, 1997; see Chapter 2 in this volume). This brings us to the next, obvious question: where did all of the diversity we observe in dogs today come from?
