Ancient Amazonians Domesticated Rice 4,000 Years Ago

Researchers from the UK and Brazil the UK have discovered that Amazonian people were domesticating rice 4,000 years ago. They analyzed 16 samples of plant remains from 10 different time periods and found the ancient Amazonians grew bigger rice over time. This helped with their diet during flooding seasons. The research was published in the journal Nature Ecology and Evolution.
