Linear models for the prediction of animal breeding values.

Book cover for Linear models for the prediction of animal breeding values.

Description

This book contains 17 chapters that describe the use of statistical analyses and models to estimate, analyse and compare the genetic parameters, breeding value and performance traits of livestock. Each chapter contains the theories and actual application of the concepts. The book has been compiled from various publications and experience in the subject area and from involvement in several national evaluation schemes over the last 14 years. Relevant references are included to indicate sources of some of the materials.
