Domestication through the Centuries: Darwin s Ideas and Dmitry Belyaev s Long-Term Experiment in Silver Foxes
(Universidad de Concepción.Facultad de Ciencias Naturales y Oceanográficas., 2009)
Analysis of direct and indirect selection and indices in soybean segregating populations
Estimates of gain with selection are very useful in breeding programs to predict the success of selection. Index-based simultaneous selection makes breeding more successful. The objective of this report was to estimate and ...
Rooting in Km selective media as efficient in vitro selection method for sunflower genetic transformation
(Pontificia Universidad Católica de Valparaíso, 2006)
Bird-mediated selection on fruit display traits in Celtis ehrenbergiana (Cannabaceae)
(Evolutionary Ecology Ltd, 2014-08)
Background: In mutualistic interactions of fleshy-fruited plants and seed-dispersing birds, dispersers act as natural selection agents on fruit display traits. Bird-mediated phenotypic selection on maternal and seed level ...
Identification of superior genotypes and soybean traits by multivariate analysis and selection index
(Univ Federal Ceara, Dept Geol, 2018-07-01)
The selection of superior genotypes of soybean is a complex process, thus exploratory multivariate techniques can be applied to select genotypes analyzing the agronomic traits altogether, increasing the chance of success ...
Pollinator-mediated selection and experimental manipulation of the flower phenotype in Chloraea bletioides
1. While many studies of flower evolution have relied on the assessment of selection coefficients, these estimates represent correlative evidence of selection. Few studies have combined correlative with experimental ...
Comparison of selective genotyping strategies for prediction of breeding values in a population undergoing selection
(Amer Soc Animal Science, 2012-12-01)
Genomewide marker information can improve the reliability of breeding value predictions for young selection candidates in genomic selection. However, the cost of genotyping limits its use to elite animals, and how such ...
