Responses to long-term selection for 4-week body weight in Japanese quail



Responses to long-term selection for 4-week body weight in Japanese quail



2nd World Congress on Genetics applied to Livestock Production, 4th-8th October 1982-5 Plenary sessions: 84-92



Dramatic responses were observed in 4-wk body weight following 55 generations of selection under different nutritional environments. Realised h2s were high (0.32-0.45) for generations 1-10, moderate (0.15-0.24) for generations 11-30, and small (0.04-0.19) for generations 31-55. Heritabilities were greater under a good nutritional environment than under a poor one.
