Genetic parameters for birth weight (BW), weaning weight (WW) and pre-weaning daily gain (PWDG) in Iranian Mehraban sheep were estimated using restricted maximum likelihood (REML) procedure. Six different animal models were fitted, differentiated by including or excluding maternal effects, with and without covariance between maternal and direct genetic(More)
Genetic parameters were estimated for birth weight (BWT), weaning weight (WWT) and pre-weaning Average Daily Gain (ADG) using Restricted Maximum Likelihood (REML) procedures. Six different animal models were fitted, differentiated by including or excluding maternal effects. The direct heritability estimates (h2) ranged from 0.26 to 0.53, 0.18 to 0.32 and(More)
We tested the extent to which resistance of common bean (Phaseolus vulgaris) cultivars to the spider mite Tetranychus urticae parallels the extent to which these plants display indirect defenses via the induced attraction of the predatory mite Phytoseiulus persimilis. First, via field and greenhouse trials on 19 commercial bean cultivars, we selected two(More)
