Perennial ryegrass diploids with elevated concentrations of water-soluble carbohydrate (WSC), commonly termed 'high-sugar grasses' (HSGs), have been promoted as a tool for increasing the efficiency of the use of protein (nitrogen (N)) in the rumen and thus offering scope for increasing milk...

Risks associated with clonal forestry are mainly biological. Among such risks, propagation failure, cultivar decline, and imperfect clonal evaluation all call for specific, targeted countermeasures; delayed failure of clones, however, calls mainly for risk spread. Propagation failures often reduce...

The literature on genotype × environment interaction (IGE) was reviewed and discussed in order to obtain an overview of its effects for breeding programmes in tropical conditions. The results from cattle were the example used, owing to the great number of references available. The evidence shows...

Great improvements in both growth rate and carcass composition have resulted from efficient breeding programmes employed in the pig industry in recent years. Selection strategies that emphasise high efficiency of lean growth (low feed intake/lean growth), however, result in a decline in voluntary...

The experimental evidence for heterosis × environment interaction is reviewed briefly for plants, fungi and insects, and in detail for mice, cattle, sheep, pigs and poultry. Although there were relatively few experiments actually designed to investigate this interaction in domestic species, there...
