The Columbian Exchange is the name we give to human contact between the Old World and the New World that began with Christopher Columbus’s First Expedition, in 1492.
As a result of this contact many species were moved either deliberately or accidentally from one side of the Atlantic Ocean to the other.
Test your knowledge of which side of the Atlantic the following species originated—that is, where they were native to in 1491. All species given here are now grown on both sides of the Atlantic Ocean.
