A set of 130 clones of Picea abies planted at 3 field sites in 1988 were evaluated in 1996. Ortets were selected in 5 full-sib families. Estimates of ortet (nursery) - ramet (field) correlations were significant but low (r = 0.23). Correlation estimates vary dramatically between families. Different degrees of adaptation on family level are discussed as one possible explanation.
