Inheritance of growth and solid wood quality traits in a large Norway spruce population tested at two locations in southern Sweden

Abstract

Unfavorable genetic correlations between growth and wood quality traits are one of the biggest challenges in advanced conifer breeding programs. To examine and deal with such correlation, increment cores were sampled at breast height from 5,618 trees in 524 open-pollinated families in two 21-year-old Norway spruce progeny trials in southern Sweden, and age… (More)
