Divergent selection for uterine capacity in rabbits. II. Correlated response in litter size and its components estimated with a cryopreserved control population.

Abstract

Our objective was to evaluate the correlated responses to selection for litter size and its components after 10 generations of divergent selection for uterine capacity (UC). A total of 294 intact females from the 11th and 12th generations of divergent selection for high and low UC and from a cryopreserved control population was used (139, 112, and 43… (More)
