Abstract

Six cattle, four sheep and three goats of andalusian authochthonous domestic breeds considered to be in extinction danger have been studied.
We have visited the last existent farms of these breeds, retaking the present census of pure animals, several iconographic and zoometrical material, and the views of the farmers about the conservation of these animals. At the same time we have determined the genetical state of these populations using the biochemical polymorphism as genetic markers.
In this paper we present a classification of these breeds as a basis of the conservation actions demanded and the conservation criteria suggested by our results for every case.
