Presencia de tres biotipos en el gallo "Peluca" de la región de Cho'Órti de Chiquimula, Guatemala
MetadataShow full item record
A morphometrical study was made in 60 adult cocks from four municipalities in the Ch'orti region in Chiquimula, Guatemala. There were studied 18 morphometric quantitative traits: body length, wing and shank lengths, rump length and width, beak length, head length, face length, metatarsus length and perimeter, dorsosternal diameter, bi-costal width, body height, chest perimeter, abdominal perimeter, body width, back height and body weight. In addition, the following 6 qualitative traits were also collected: presence of feathers in the leg, presence of ear, skin and leg colour, shape of the crest, and presence of feathers on the neck. An existence of three conglomerates was determined by means of multivariate statistical analysis of quantitative traits, but qualitative traits did not allow any grouping, and most birds combined these traits. The general form defined those three groups, which would not seem 'ecotypes', as they seem not to differ by environmental adaptive characters, rather being mere 'biotypes'.

Morphostructural characters of the domestic Bacyard Creole Duck (Cairina moschata) in three communities of Guatemala Jáuregui, R.; Gonzáles, Mario E.; Lorenzo, C.R.; Folgar, Ana M.; Isern, Ana; Parés Casanova, Pere-Miquel (Red CONBIAND, 2020-11-27)Domestic Creole ducks (PCDs) are hardy, less nutritionally demanding, less susceptible to disease, and promising among native species due to their rapid growth rate. In Guatemala, PCDs are part of the biological heritage ...
