Abstract

The genetic response to selection is central to both evolutionary biology and animal and plant breeding. While Price's theorem (PT) is well-known in evolutionary biology, most breeders are unaware of it. Rather than using PT, breeders express response to selection as the product of the intensity of ...

Abstract

Genotype × environment interaction (G × E) is of increasing importance for dairy cattle breeders due to international multiple-environment selection of animals as well as the differentiation of production environments within countries. This theoretical simulation study tested the hypothesis that...

Abstract

Breeding programs for different species aim to improve performance by testing members of full-sib (FS) and half-sib (HS) families in different environments. When genotypes respond differently to changes in the environment, this is defined as genotype by environment (G × E) interaction. The presence ...

AbstractFull Text

The present study was aimed to assess the role of genotype× environment interaction (G×E) and generation interval on the genetic gain caused by importing the genetic materials of dairy cattle in a country without advanced breeding program. Changing allele substitution effects of quantitative trait...

Abstract

This study aimed to evaluate the relationship among traits related to yield and nutritive value of alfalfa genotypes grown under deficit and full irrigation conditions. Seventy-seven alfalfa genotypes were evaluated in two different cuts, the first one with full irrigation, and the second, with...

CABI Book Chapter Info
Cover for Genetic components of behaviour.

The genetic component of behaviour makes it possible to select for behavioural traits, such as maternal ability in mice, and against others, like aggression in dogs. In order to carry out behavioural selection without unwanted side-effects, we need to know more about the links between various...
