We estimated heritabilities and correlations for bud flushing and growth traits of white spruce seedlings, and the correlations of seedling traits with 10- and 11-year height of the same families in the field. The seedling greenhouse experiment had a randomized complete block design with 30...
Study of early selection in tree breeding - 3. A case study using early information to enhance selection efficiency in late trait in lodgepole pine (Pinus contorta spp. Latifolia)Download
We present a selection procedure that combines early performance from retrospective study and late performance from field testing into an index designed for enhancing the selection efficiency of the late performance. The prerequisite is that early performance from retrospective study and late...
