A l'INRA, le groupe de recherche Physiologie et Génétique de l’Adaptation au Stress (PGAS) de la Station de Recherches Zootechniques développe en Guadeloupe des études sur l’adaptation des animaux aux contraintes d’élevage. Voici une présentation générale de ces activités scientifiques.
To prevent the extinction of local breeds, Vietnam founded the National Programme on Conservation of the Vietnamese Animal Genetic Resources. Under the direction of the National Institute of Animal Husbandry (NIAH), special sub-programmes were founded for the protection and conservation of ce...
This case study focuses on the formation and distribution of the main indigenous pig breeds and crossbreds in Vietnam, the introduction of high performance breeds and their impact on biodiversity, and the suitability of different breeds for different environmental conditions.
This paper presents a technical description of a commercial collared peccary production system in large enclosures, which illustrates, to our knowledge, the largest scale initiative to produce this species reported to date, giving some indications of its financial profitability.
Investigation of the effect of pig genotype on litter performance under the humid tropical conditions of Southwestern Nigeria.
In spite of the persistence in Uruguay of pigs belonging to the wattled pig breed, no adequate attention had ever been paid to them. Preliminary information obtained in the census indicates that the Uruguayan Wattled Pigs whilst critical in terms of numbers are widely distributed geographical...
Long-term strategies for improvement schemes in tropical production systems should focus on the use of indigenous populations, in purebred or in crossbreeding systems with improved breeds...
