Description: In order to compare families that are planted on different sites, many forest tree breeding programs include common families in their different series of trials. Computer simulation was used to examine how many common families were needed in each series of progeny trials in order to reliably compare families across series. Average gain and its associated variation stabilized after the addition of four to six common families.
Keywords: progeny testing, common seed lots, connectedness
