Abstract

The relationship between the conformation score (SEUROP scale) and 32 morphologic measures of the carcass has been studied in 24 carcasses of young bulls of Pirenaica breed from the IGP Ternera de Navarra. Measures were made on 2 photographs of the carcass (lateral and dorsal) in the slaughter...

Abstract

Recently, two different approaches utilizing molecular genetic variation to assess conservation priorities have been developed. The Weitzman (1992) approach constructs maximum-likelihood trees based on pair-wise genetic distances and suggests that in efficient conservation scheme, the total length...
