Genetic parameters and selection indices for a population of Pinus elliottii Engelm. var. elliottii

Abstract:

P. elliottii Engelm. var. elliottii is an important exotic plantation species in Zimbabwe, where it is grown for saw-timber and resin production. Three progeny tests, originating from factorial matings between parents selected in plantations, were assessed at five, eight and 15 years. The objectives of the study were to characterise quantitative genetic variation in the population through the estimation of genetic parameters, and to use these parameters in combined indic...
