Improving precision of breeding values by removing spatially autocorrelated variation in forestry field experimentsDownload
Adjustment for micro-environmental heterogeneity in inadequately blocked field experiments is desirable to improve estimates of genetic parameters and to maximize genetic gains from selection. In three forestry field trials of red alder (Alnus rubra Bong.) we removed spatially autocorrelated...
Genetic variation in height, branch and needle lengths of Pinus sylvestris L. from Siberia tested in Alberta, CanadaDownload
We performed the analysis of variance and covariance on height, branch length, height to branch length ratio, and needle length measurements from thirty open-pollinated families of Pinus sylvestris L. from Siberia, Russia. This progeny trial was replicated on three sites in central Alberta,...
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...
