Experimental results with linear selection indices in Tribolium

Experimental results with linear selection indices in Tribolium

Proceedings of the 4th World Congress on Genetics applied to Livestock Production, Edinburgh 23-27 July 1990 XIII Plenary lectures, molecular genetics and mapping, selection, production and estimation: 345-348

To elucidate the causes of disagreement between realised and predicted selection responses, populations of Tribolium were selected on the basis of unrestricted and restricted selection indices. The results indicated that the discrepancies were mainly due to genetic drift and not due to environmental effects.
