La importancia de los caracteres del vellón como definidor racial. Un caso-estudio
MetadataShow full item record
To evaluate which are the best discriminant variables to distinguish ovine breeds, phenetic relationships among eight turkish and one french breeds or types were studied. A matrix of 7 morphological and 4 wool characters were analyzed by a K-means test. Results suggest that four fleece traits alone<br>total wool weight, staple length, fiber diameter and percentage of medullated fibers- permit a glimpse of differentiation among sheep breeds.

Multivariant numerical analysis with equine mandibular metric parameters in the Cavall Pirinenc Català breed. Parés Casanova, Pere-Miquel (Veterinaria Organización, 2010)Nine metric parameters were taken on 16 mandibles from adult horses belonging to the Cavall Pirinenc Català breed. Based on these parameters, we develop a descriptive and normality statistics and we obtain correlation ...
Comparative study of several Pyrenean breeds of sheep by means of the analysis of morphological characters Parés Casanova, Pere-Miquel (Veterinaria Organización, 2007)The relationships between 32 breeds of sheep (or ecotypes) have been studied by means of qualitative and quantitative analysis of data from 42 morphological characters. The average difference among the breeds (morphological ...
