SUMMARY: The Cockayne plots were sown in 1920 near Cromwell, Central Otago, on depIcted country in a IS-inch rainfall zone. The initial growth of the sown species in the J3 enclosures showed that productive herbage sp~cies could be established, jf not grazed. Pine and eucalypt species were also successfu!ly grown. The plots were opened to grazing in the(More)
The identification of genes contributing to complex diseases and quantitative traits requires genetic data of high fidelity, because undetected errors and mutations can profoundly affect linkage information. The recent emphasis on the use of the sibling-pair design eliminates or decreases the likelihood of detection of genotyping errors and marker mutations(More)
Maximum working likelihood (MWL) inference in the presence of missing data can be quite challenging because of the intractability of the associated marginal likelihood. This problem can be further exacerbated when the number of parameters involved is large. We propose using Markov chain Monte Carlo (MCMC) to rst obtain both the MWL estimator and the working(More)
