One objective of Biodiva project was to measure diversity and to discover new local animal types in Ha Giang province. For above purpose, a survey was carried out to collect data on animal production and biological traits / pictures of buffalo, cattle, goat, pig and chicken in Ha giang province. This study aiming at establishing a management system for the data set by analyzing its structure and setting up suitable software was undertaken. In the study, we also tried to find out special types of local animals and their characteristics by analyzing data sets. The data sets were divided into two parts: the first one was a data set on economic, social features and the second one was a data set on biological characteristics of animal species. The software named VIETBIODIVA was set up to manage the data sets. The analysis of data indicated that Ha giang was rich in animal biodiversity. Several types of pigs such as: black, black with some white on leg, face, tail, belly, brow and 14 teats were found. The brow local pig discovered the first time in Vietnam. Sows with 14 teats were also very rare in Vietnam. Goats in Ha giang were also much diversified in their coats and appearance. Cattle in Ha giang were the biggest cattle among the local cattle breeds in Vietnam. Buffalo in Ha giang can be divided into four types: dark, dark with white spots, white and white with some black spots on the mouth. (Résumé d'auteur)
