Genetic variances and covariances for frost tolerance in Eucalyptus globulus and E. nitens



Genetic variances and covariances for frost tolerance in Eucalyptus globulus and E. nitens



Silvae Genetica 43(5/6): 366-372



Controlled- and open-pollinated families of Eucalyptus globulus subsp. globulus (referred to here as E. globulus) and E. nitens were tested for frost resistance at 3 temperatures (-5.5, -7.0 and -8.5 degrees C) using the electrical conductivity method. Additive, dominance and error variance and covariances were estimated using a derivative-free restricted maximum likelihood (DFREML) procedure and heritabilities, and genetic and phenotypic correlations were calculated.
