Remarks A recuperation plan is today under way, being the responsibility of the Ministry of Agriculture (Servico Nacional Coudelico) and the breeders association (Associacao de Criadores de Equinos de Raca Garrana). The biometric study of the morphological type of adult Garranos included in the zootechnic register book estimates a morphological variability, basis for the continuity of the stud-book. The analysis of protein polymorphisms reveals an important genetic patrimony, contributing for the maintenance of the biodiversity in the region. The multifunction of the utilization is considered essential for the recuperation and conservation of the Garrana breed. http://ecl.cultland.org/?document_id=199
