This transition placed the production of food under human control, and, with the greater control of food supply, allowed the growth of human settlements and civilization coupled with the gradual marginalization of hunter-gathering as a way of life. But this transition did not happen once, in one place, with one crop or one domestic animal: it happened many times, independently, in many regions, and with many crops. In addition, at least some crops had multiple domestication events separately from the same or similar wild relatives.

The larger the seed, the deeper in the ground the seed can successfully germinate and emerge. Species, such as annual cereal crop relatives, with large seeds, can survive a fire regime that destroys smaller-seeded competitors. They can then form monodominant stands of annual vegetation. Notably, their local dominance and large seeds would be an attraction to preagricultural human food gatherers. Similar arguments can be used for other plant species with large food reserves: the food reserve allows competitive dominance and monodominant stands.
