Cumulative selection differentials and realized heritabilities



Cumulative selection differentials and realized heritabilities



Animal Production 49(2): 203-208



Two alternative ways of estimating cumulative selection differentials are compared. An alternative method is developed that includes the advantages of both methods. This alternative method is shown to give rise to less biased estimates of realized heritability.
