© 2018 World Scientific Publishing Company. The complete characterization of the phase portraits of real planar quadratic vector fields is very far from being accomplished. As it is almost impossible to work directly with the whole class of quadratic vector fields because it depends on twelve parameters, we reduce the number of parameters to five by using the action of the group of real affine transformations and time rescaling on the class of real quadratic differential systems. Using this group action, we obtain normal forms for the class of quadratic systems that we want to study with at most five parameters. Then working with these normal forms, we complete the characterization of the phase portraits in the Poincaré disc of all planar quadratic polynomial differential systems having an invariant conic : f(x,y) = 0, and a Darboux invariant of the form f(x,y)est with s.
