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 ...
Parés Casanova, Pere-Miquel; Solivellas, J.; Cifre, J. (Annals of Experimental Biology, 2015-09-01)This study characterised two different phenotypes of the White Majorcan ovine breed, a local indigenous breed restricted to Balearic Islands. For this purpose, 20 different adult animals from phenotype "rasa" (short wooled) ...
