  • A lush field of wild barley, Hordeum spontaneum growing on the Natufian terrace and cemetery of the prehistoric Oren cave, at the African hot and dry south-facing-slope of Evolution Canyon, Lower Nahal Oren, Mount Carmel, Israel. Possibly, this barley was collected in the pre-agricultural period (Nevo 2015), and later domesticated, together with wild emmer wheat, Triticum dicoccoides, which is primarily growing on the opposite abutting, European cool, and humid forested north- facing slope above Um Usba prehistoric cave (original photo).
