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,...
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...
