• If selective breeding is to be successful, significant genetic variation must be present in the traits targeted for improvement (i.e. “objective traits”). • This study aimed to quantify genetic variation in Eucalyptus globulus pulpwood and sawn-timber objective traits (rotation-age whole-tree volume, survival, whole-tree basic density, sawn-board Janka hardness and sawn-board internal checking) and estimate additive genetic correlations between these and inexpensively-assessed “selection… CONTINUE READING
