    Animal Genetic Resources is a specialized journal supporting the implementation of the Global Plan of Action for Animal Genetic Resources. Papers (in English, French or Spanish, with a summary in all three languages) are published on the following areas of animal genetic resources management: phenotypic and molecular characterization; surveying and monitoring; development (genetic improvement); sustainable use; conservation; capacitybuilding in livestock-keeping communities; and policies and ins titutions. Two volumes are published per year.This issue features nine articles, with strong focus on ruminants. The majority of articles deal with characterization of breeds but also consider production environments.

    Animal Genetic Resources is an international trilingual journal, published two times per year. It is available via the Cambridge University Press (CUP) online platform and in print. Main papers are published in English, French or Spanish, with a summary in all three languages (if interested, please contact: AnGR-Journal@fao.org). The journal covers the following areas: phenotypic and molecular characterization; surveying and monitoring; development (genetic improvement); sustainable use; conserv ation; capacity-building in livestock keeper and pastoralist communities; and policies and institutions. It thus supports the implementation of the Global Plan of Action for Animal Genetic Resources, the internationally agreed framework for the management of animal genetic resources, and the Convention on Biological Diversity.

    Western Visayas has largest population of native chickens in the Philippines; however, data on the phenotypic and genetic diversity is limited. Eight hundred and ten chickens from 270 different flocks, from six provinces within the region were chosen for characterization. Data collected includes farmer selection practices, means of identifying genetic groups and information on phenotypic traits of native chickens. This information was analysed using statistical tools suggested by FAO. Phenotypic diversity and equitability of distribution were analysed using Simpson’s diversity index and equality of distribution. Results showed that native chicken genetic resources are comprised of two types, the Jolo and Bisaya; the latter was further divided into Bisaya–Cluster I and Bisaya–Cluster II. Jolo chickens were the heaviest (P < 0.01) but comparable with Bisaya–Cluster II in terms of egg weight, head shape and phenotypic distance. They all had higher diversity and equitability of distribution in their plumage colour and pattern, though the iris and shank colour had higher diversity but had limited distributions. Bisaya–Cluster II and Jolo chickens had higher diversity and above average distribution in liveweight. They were also homogenous in feather morphology and distribution; head and breast shape, and skeletal variants. Thus, the observed diversities and distributions can be used in identifying genetic materials for any breeding undertakings.
