Autre titre : Essai d'analyse phylogénétique des bovins locaux de Guadeloupe

Abstract : The purpose of this study is to determine the phylogenetic relationship between the local beef cattle of Guadeloupe ("créole" cattlel and some other cattle breeds of the world. Polymorphism analysis of some biochemical markers have been performed on 204 "créole" cattle sampled in the population. Six protein loci, eleven blood group systems, and class 1 BoLA antigens, were studied. The data about other breeds, suspected to be more or less closely related to local cattle, were obtained from the litterature available. The statistical analysis concerned Principal Component Analysis, computations of four genetic distances and their UPGMA representation. The results confirm the intermediate position of the local cattle, issued from several crosses occured during the History, between the european taurines, mainly from iberican engins, an the african humped cattle. But the local population cannot be connected firmly to any of the groups studied. The "créole" beef cattle of Guadeloupe could therefore be classified with the sanga cattle. (Résumé d'auteur)
