During the First World Congress on genetics applied to Livestock Production in 1974 there were no papers specifically devoted to the goat. Since then there has been a resurgence of interest among both biological and social scientists in this neglected species, partly due to an increasing interest in the problems of developing countries and partly to a d ive for diversification in the agricultures of most countries. As a result, a major conference on goat production was held earlier this year in Tucson, Arizona, and a general report in this plenary session has been offered to the goat.
