DAD-IS is the acronym of the worldwide Domestic Animal Diversity Information System of the Food and Agriculture Organization of the United Nations. It is defined as "a communication and information tool" for the FAO's Management of Animal Genetic Resources programme.[1] It includes a searchable database of information about breeds, tools for management, and contacts for the National and Regional Coordinators for the programme.

Animal species[edit]

In August 2011 the database held 13878 breeds of 35 mammal and avian species, reported from 198 countries. Fish and bees are not included.[2]
