Estimation of variance, heritability, genetic gain and correlations among some growth characters in Bambusa pallida Roxb

, : Estimation of variance, heritability, genetic gain and correlations among some growth characters in Bambusa pallida Roxb. Indian Journal of Forestry 16(1): 33-38

A comparative study was undertaken in 1985-88 at Chessa, Arunachal Pradesh, on growth characters in 8 plus bamboo clumps of Bambusa pallida. Observations were recorded on culm height, culm girth and number of new culms per clump over 1.5-4.5 yr. The data were analysed for components of variance, heritability, genetic gain and correlation coefficients (genotypic and phenotypic).
