Title: Site-to-site genetic correlations and their implications on breeding zone size and optimum number of progeny test sites for Coastal Douglas-fir.

Author: Johnson, G.R.;

Date: 1997

Source: Silvae Genetica. 46: 280-285

Publication Series: Scientific Journal (JRNL)

Description: Type B genetic correlations were used to examine the relation among geographic differences between sites and their site-to-site genetic (Type B) correlations. Examination of six local breeding zones in Oregon indicated that breeding zones were, for the most part, not too large because few environmental variables were correlated with Type B genetic correlations. The data also were used to examine expected gains from using combinations of sites in selection indices. Even though additional sites always increased the expected genetic gain, the marginal increase was only minimal if 3 or 4 sites were already in the index. The trend was consistent over all 6 breeding zones.
