Abstract

Data from five thinned E. urophylla progeny trials in south east China were used to estimate the genetic parameters heritability, age-age correlations and Type B correlations for DBH and height from age 1 to 5 years. Heritabilities ranged between 0.11 and 0.41 for DBH, and between 0.12 and 0.49 for HT. Heritability increased with age. Age-age correlations for DBH and height were generally very high; effective early selection could be made as early as 12 months. High Type B correlations and low family-by-fertiliser interaction for both DBH and height suggested that genotype-by-environment interaction should not be important for this species in the region of the trials.
