Heritability of sting characters in Africanized honeybees
In this paper we proposed to estimate the heritability of seven morphological characters that compose the sting apparatus ofthe Africanized honeybee workers. An experimental design to estimate genetic parameters was based ...
Heritability of the number of ovarioles in honey bee workers (Apis mellifera L.) (hym.:apidae)
Narrow and broad sense heritabilities (h2) of the number of ovarioles in Apis mellifera L. workers were estimated using two distinct data sets, based on groups of half (queens inseminated by several drones) and super-sisters ...
Body condition score of Nellore beef cows: a heritable measure to improve the selection of reproductive and maternal traits
Despite the economic importance of beef cattle production in Brazil, female reproductive performance, which is strongly associated with production efficiency, is not included in the selection index of most breeding programmes ...
Response of Productive and Morphovegetative Traits of Globe Artichoke (Cynara cardunculus var. scolymus) to Mass Selection and Estimation of their Heritability
(Instituto de Investigaciones Agropecuarias, INIA, 2010)
Heritability of morphological and life history traits in a pelagic tunicate
Populations may adapt in response to selection pressures imposed by global environmental change. In marine zooplankton, measurements of the heritability of key life history characters, and thus the potential for evolution, ...
Respostas esperadas de seleção nas primeiras gerações para caracteres de produção e aparência de tubérculos de batata.
(Semina: Ciências Agrárias, Londrina, v. 37, n. 5, p. 2849-2858, set./out. 2016., 2016)
Genetic Parameters for Reproductive Traits of Crossbred Buffaloes from Brazil, Estimated by Bayesian Inference
(Int Buffalo Information Ctr, 2013-01-01)
The objective of the study was to estimate heritability for calving interval (CI) and age at first calving (AFC) and also calculate repeatability for CI in buffaloes using Bayesian inference. The Brazilian Buffaloes Genetic ...
Estimativas de parâemtros genéticos para características morfométricas em cavalos Quarto de Milha de corrida
With highlighted sprint ability, the racing line is important segment within the Quarter Horses breed, with huge impact on agribusiness. Theseanimals have noted morphological differences when compared to other lines within ...
Estimativas de parâmetros genéticos para características de crescimento em ovinos da raça somalis brasileira
The aim of this study was to estimate genetic parameters for growth traits in Somalis Brasileira hair sheep breed. The data used in this study were from the flock of Embrapa Caprinos and Ovinos, located in the city of ...
Genetic diversity among progenies of Crambe abyssinica Hochst for seed traits
Crambe is an important biofuel crop and its oil has unique traits such as high erucic acid content which can be used as industrial lubricant, corrosion inhibitor as well as ingredient in synthetic rubber manufacturing. ...
