The origin and early distribution of New World cultivated plants

, : The origin and early distribution of New World cultivated plants. Agric. Hist, 13: 109-17

The various methods that have been employed to determine the origin of crop plants are discussed; these include the botanical method of Vavilov and the archaeological, historical, philological and mythological approaches. In the second part of the paper a list is given of the crop plants native to the New World, with particulars as to their regions of origin. No species of crop plant was common to both the Old and New Worlds in pre-Columbian time except Lagenaria vulgaris and Cocos micifera.
