Because of the exceptional situation of the Congress (reported 2 times, and COVID-19 still still present.) numerous papers were accepted but not presented since the authors were not registrated in the Congress or not able to join the Congress organization. Exceptional situation => exceptional solution. Thus after the list of the communications presented during the Congress it-self was added a supplementary list of 50 communications accepted by the scientific committee but not presented, with an access to accepted full text. This solution was adopted to fit correctly with one of the main objectives of the WRSA : diffusion worldwide of scientific knowledge about Rabbit , particularly ,obtained by the different research staffs Supplementary list

After the communications lists are included in these proceedings the files prepared to present the 5 round tables  go to files
