data["Banana"] = {
        found = {"Jungle"},
	tilebonus = [=[ +2 [[Food (Civ4Col)|Food]]]=],
        cp = "The banana is mentioned for the first time in history in Buddhist texts in 600 BC. Alexander the Great discovered the taste of the banana in the valleys of India in 327 BC. The existence of organized plantations that harvested bananas can be found in China in the year 200 AD. Arab merchants, after Islamic conquerors brought the banana to Palestine in 650 AD, eventually spread the bananas over much of Africa. In 1502, Portuguese colonists started the first banana plantations in the Caribbean and in Central America."}
data["Corn"] = {
        found = {"Plains"},
	tilebonus = [=[ +3 [[Food (Civ4Col)|Food]]]=],
        cp = [[The term "corn" applies to any staple food grain or fruit of a plant in the grass family. It is also commonly called "maize." Maize is native to the valley of southern Mexico and cultivation of it is thought to have started from 7,500 to 12,000 years ago. Archaeological remains of the earliest maize cob, found at Guila Naquitz Cave in the Oaxaca Valley of Mexico, date back roughly 6,250 years.]]}
data["Cotton"] = {
        found = {"Plains"},
	tilebonus = [=[ +2 [[Cotton (Civ4Col)|Cotton]]]=],
        cp = "Cotton is a white fluffy plant that has been used the world 'round for clothing and fabric for almost five thousand years. This versatile plant grows naturally in both hemispheres, surviving in a wide variety of climates. The earliest accounts of cotton come from the Indus River valley in modern Pakistan. From there it spread to Europe and Africa, and eventually to the New World. Taking root in the southern English colonies, the cotton industry of the New World quickly became the primary supplier of Europe's cotton demands, thanks in large part to the invention of the cotton gin in 1793. The American South would remain the most important source of cotton until the 19th century, when America's slave-based economy crumbled and Egypt took the reigns as the world's primary cotton provider."}
data["Crab"] = {
        found = {"Coast"},
	tilebonus = [=[ +3 [[Food (Civ4Col)|Food]]]=],
        cp = [[Crabs have long been a significant provider of food to those living on the mid-Eastern coastline of the United States. Within the Chesapeake Bay, thousands of crabs are harvested every year. Other forms of crabs are also found in various places and include such species as the Alaskan king crab and the Dungeness crab.]]}
data["Deer"] = {
        found = {"Forest","Light Forest"},
	tilebonus = [=[ +2 [[Food (Civ4Col)|Food]]]=],
        cp = "These ruminant mammals are widely distributed, with representatives in all continents except Australia and Africa. Deer differ from other ruminants in that they have antlers instead of horns. The male deer are called stags, harts, bucks, or bulls, and females are called does, hinds, or cows. Young deer are often referred to as fawns or calves.<br><br>It is thought that the New World species evolved about five million years ago in the forests of North America and Siberia."}
data["Fish"] = {
        found = {"Coast"},
	tilebonus = [=[ +4 [[Food (Civ4Col)|Food]]]=],
        cp = [[Prevailing winds, ocean currents, and deep water trenches can often combine to produce conditions that are optimum for fishing. In areas such as the Pacific coast of Central and South America, offshore winds push the warm surface waters out to deeper waters. Underwater currents push cold, nutrient-rich water from deep below the surface back toward the coast. The high concentration of nutrients in this colder water, caused by decomposition of organic matter at extreme depths, creates an ideal environment for fish and other sea life. Civilizations with access to areas such as this can significantly increase their food supply by establishing a thriving fishing industry.]]}
data["Fur"] = {
        found = {"Forest"},
	tilebonus = [=[ +2 [[Furs (Civ4Col)|Furs]]]=],
        cp = "Throughout history, animal furs have been valuable commodities for trade and sale. Many different types of animals including minks, rabbits, and beavers have been captured by trappers for the purpose of obtaining their pelts for use in the making of clothing and other items. The exploration and colonization of the New World caused the fur industry to boom by making a variety of furs readily available. By the late 1800's, farms were set up specifically to raise animals for the fur industry. Starting in the 1970's, environmentalists and animal rights groups have lobbied to change public opinion concerning the harvesting and sale of furs. Despite these vocal groups, the fur industry remains profitable, if not as widespread, in the world today."}
data["Iron"] = {
        found = {"Hills"},
	tilebonus = [=[ +2 [[Ore (Civ4Col)|Ore]]]=],
        cp = "When early civilizations began to use metal to construct tools and weapons, the most commonly used metal was bronze. Bronze had the advantage of being readily available and easy to work with. Unfortunately, it was too soft to hold an effective edge. In the mid-14th century BC in central Europe, iron replaced bronze as the metal of choice, and the Iron Age was begun. Since this time, iron has been a valuable commodity. Deposits of iron and iron ore found in mountains are mined and processed for use in their raw form, and in the production of steel."}
data["Silver"] = {
        found = {"Peaks","Tundra"},
	tilebonus = [=[ +2 [[Silver (Civ4Col)|Silver]]]=],
        cp = [[Silver is a chemical element in the periodic table that has the symbol "Ag" and the atomic number 47. A soft, white, lustrous transition metal, silver has the highest electrical and thermal conductivity of any metal and is found in mineral deposits and in free form.<br><br>Slag heaps found in Asia Minor indicate that silver has been known about for a long time, and that it was being separated from lead as early as the fourth millennium BC.]]}
data["Sugar"] = {
        found = {"Marsh"},
	tilebonus = [=[ +2 [[Sugar (Civ4Col)|Sugar]]]=],
        cp = "Sugarcane is a tropical grass, probably native to New Guinea. Sugar refining was developed in China, India, and the Middle East, where it became a staple of cooking and desserts. During the eighteenth century, Europeans developed a taste for jams, candy, tea, coffee, and other sweets in greater numbers. These demands made sugar enormously popular, and its production and marketing have gone through a series of booms."}
data["Tobacco"] = {
        found = {"Grassland"},
	tilebonus = [=[ +2 [[Tobacco (Civ4Col)|Tobacco]]]=],
        cp = [[Tobacco has been consumed for thousands of years by natives of the Americas. Smoked, chewed, liquefied and drunk, tobacco was used from the depths of the Yucatan jungles to the fields of Virginia. The introduction of the Europeans to this strange weed that soothed their nerves and that, by George, they just could not stop smoking, grew into a major source of income for English colonies.<br><br>The English colony of Virginia soon dominated the tobacco industry in the New World, providing England and much of Europe with its supply. But tobacco's appeal was far from universal - the English King James I refused to allow people to smoke it in his presence, referring to it as a "noxious weede."]]}
