Figure : Diversité génétique et phénotypique intra-race chez la race Marans. On peut y voir les proximités génétiques entre individus sur l’arbre interne, les éleveurs sur le cercle interne (AGU étant un professionnel et les autres amateurs) et les variétés sur le cercle externe. Les variétés correspondent à des phénotypes différents : MB – Marans Blanche, MCA – Marans Coucou à camail Argentée, MF – Marans Froment, MGB – Marans Gris Barré, MN – Marans Noire, MNC -Marans Noire à camail Cuivré, MR – Marans Rouge et MS – Marans « Sauvage ».
