By around A. Most parts of Eurasia and North Africa were for instance occupied by large states relying on food production which possessed many, if not all, of the proximate factors.
And the Aborigines of Australia were still living as huntergatherers with stone tools when they were conquered and nearly exterminated by the English. For Diamond, differences in the availability of suitable wild species of plants and animals, as well as the shape of the continents, are the ultimate explanation for these drastically differing developments.
First he points out, that the availability of suitable wild species of plants affects both time and extent of the move to food production with the consequences mentioned above. As will be shown under bullet 3, only a fraction of edible wild plants are adequate for domestication. Furthermore, the allocation of adequate wild plants was quite unequal around the globe. Second, he demonstrates that the availability of wild animals suitable for domestication was even more unequal around the globe.
He reasons that animal domestication requires that a wild animal fulfils many prerequisites. Diamond enumerates for instance that the animal has to feed on a diet that humans can supply, the willingness to breed in captivity and the lack of a tendency to panic when fenced in, as well as a social structure involving submissive behaviour towards dominant animals and humans.
These prerequisites make the number of potential candidates for domestication rather low. This can supply parts of continents that lack suitable candidates with the basis to adopt food production.
Another aspect of the shape of continents he mentions, is the flow of inventions from one society to another by diffusion which is easier without major barriers like deserts or rainforests between the societies occupying the continents.
