European Farm Animal Biodiversity Information System (EFABIS)

The European Farm Animal Biodiversity Information System (EFABIS) is the European information system for animal genetic resources. It is managed by the European Regional Focal Point for Animal Genetic Resources (ERFP). EFABIS serves as the platform for the exchange of national data on animal genetic resources, provided by the European National Coordinators.
EFABIS is the source of European breed-related data for the Domestic Animal Diversity Information System (DAD-IS).

Results

Breed Diversity in Europe

Mammalian and avian livestock breeds are reported to occur either in only a single country (local breeds), in several countries in one region (regional transboundary) or in different regions of the world (international transboundary).

Risk Status in Europe for cattle, sheep, goat, pig and chicken

Based on the population size reported by countries it is possible to assess the risk of extinction of domesticated animals.
