Detection and Genetic Mapping of Quantitative Trait Loci Influencing Stem Growth Efficiency in Radiata Pine

Emebiri, Livinus Chinenye


Needle-to-stem unit rate (NESTUR) is a stem growth index of conifer seedling trees that measures the efficiency of stemwood production per unit of needle growth. Five experiments were carried out in this thesis using progenies of two unrelated full-sib radiata pine crosses. The initial experiment (experiment 1) applied the bulked segregant analysis technique to determine whether RAPD analysis could be successfully extended to the development of molecular markers for NESTUR in radiata pine. The...[Show more]
