- Initial evaluation of genomic selection to improve wood property in Eucalyptus nitens breeding population
SWP-T006 - Access: unrestricted.
The E. nitens genetic improvement programs are predominantly based on open-pollinated progeny tests. This approach produces high levels of hidden relatedness whose ignorance causes upward bias in genetic parameters. Development…
- Breeding plan for the development of Douglas-fir (Pseudotsuga menziesii var. menziesii) in New Zealand
SWP-T003 - Access: unrestricted.
Douglas-fir is renowned for its stiff wood and is one of the finest structural timbers in the world. Eighty per cent out of 105,000 hectares planted Douglas-fir in New Zealand…
- Alternative Species Site Mapping Review and Analysis
SWP-T004 - Access: unrestricted.
Background Commercial forestry in New Zealand is dominated by the site insensitive species Pinus radiata (radiata pine). The commercial planting of non-radiata pine (alternative) forestry species over the last century has…
- Results of assessments in FR375, Beaumont controlled-pollinated 1999 Douglas fir progeny trial
SWP-T001 - Access: unrestricted.
The 1999 controlled-pollinated Douglas-fir trial at Beaumont (FR375) was designed to compare selections from the first Douglas-fir breeding population. They had been selected as the best individuals in the best-adapted…
