                                                                   From Food Gathering To Food Producing . . . Paleolithic men could not control their food supply. So long as they relied on foraging, hunting, fishing, and trapping, they were dependent on the natural food supply in a given area to keep from starving. But while Paleolithic men continued their food-gathering pattern of existence in Europe, Africa, and Australia, groups of people in the Near East began to cultivate edible plants and to breed animals.

Paleolithic man was a hunter; Neolithic man became a farmer and herdsman. . . .                                        Source: T.
