Example text

E. While the cereal grains harvested there were still considered wild, they may have been planted intentionally, in plots cleared for the seeds. The Natufians, living in what is now northern ISRAEL and Jordan and southwest Syria, established permanent homes, stored food in stone jars, and used grindstones, mortars, and pestles to process grain. Farming is more labor-intensive than hunting and gathering; the motivation for changing from one lifestyle to the other is not known. Climate changes and glacial retreats in the previous millennia may have led to increased yields of wild plants.

Larger and larger communities became dependent upon fewer varieties of food and vulnerable to shortages caused by droughts or variations in weather, as well as pests and diseases. Famine and starvation were constant threats. Also, populations grew more rapidly when they became settled and permanent. Mothers in hunter-gatherer groups limited births because the group needed to be mobile to survive; too many infants to carry would slow it down. In a farming society, however, mothers Alabama tended to have more babies, closely spaced.

Moreover, hydrostatic pressure is enough to crush a person’s body to the size of a soccer ball. No plant life exists because of a lack of sunlight. The animals—primarily small worms, crustaceans, and mollusks—are scavengers. They live off bacteria on the seafloor and fecal pellets, bones, carcasses of large animals, and dissolved material that filters down the water column. Population densities are low owing to a harsh environment and scarcity of food. BIBLIOGRAPHY. J. E. Weaver, The Geology and Geochemistry of Abyssal Plains, Geological Society Special Publication No.
