dc.description.abstract [EN] A total of 80 two-day-old suckling rabbits of a selected New Zealand White rabbit strain imported from a temperate country (France) were suckled in a tropical country (Benin) by foster does of the local population. The growth performance of the imported rabbits and of 81 native rabbits suckled by the same does was compared. No morbidity was observed in both groups. Growth rate was identical in both groups up to 21 days i.e. the end of the exclusive milk feeding : 10.2 and 10.5 g/day for imported and native rabbits respectively. During the last period befare weaning (21 to 31 days) the group of imported sucklings had a lower growth rate (13.0 vs 17.1 g/day). This period corresponds to the beginning of salid food consumption. A genetic adaptation of the local rabbits to the local feed and/or climate, or, more probably, an effect of the early chemosensory experience (during both gestation and first suckling) of the imported strain are discussed. es_ES
dc.description.abstract [FR] Un total de 80 lapereaux de 2 jours provenant d'une souche de lapins Néo Zélandais Blancs sélectionnée dans un pays tempéré (France), ont été transportés et adoptés dans un pays a climat tropical (Bénin) par des méres d'une population locale. La croissance des lapereaux importés et des lapereaux autochtones a été comparée. Aucune morbidité particuliére n'a été observée dans aucun des deux groupes. La croissance fut identique pour les deux groupes jusqu'a l'age de 21 jours, soit jusqu'a la fin de l'alimentation exclusivement lactée des lapereaux : 10,2 et 10,5 g/jour pour les lapereaux importés et locaux respectivement. Entre 21 et 31 jours (sevrage) les lapereaux importés ont eu une croissance plus faible : 13,0 centre 17, 1 g~our pour les lapereaux nés sur place. Cette période correspond au début normal de la consommation d'aliment solide. Deux hypothéses explicatives sont évoquées par les auteurs : soit une adaptation génétique de la souche locale a l'alimentation locale eUou au climat, soit plus probablement une différence entre les lapereaux importés et les lapereaux locaux dans l'expérience chémosensorielle initiale acquise pendan! la vie in utero et lors de la premiére tétée.
