The quantitative assessment of genetic diversity within and between populations is important for decision-making in genetic conservation plans. In our study, we applied the livestock core set method to define the contribution of 15 cattle breeds, 11 of which are Portuguese indigenous cattle breeds, to genetic diversity. In livestock core set theory genetic diversity is defined as the maximum genetic variance that can be obtained in a random-mating population that is bred from the populations… CONTINUE READING
