Data from: Assessing the expected response to genomic selection of individuals and families in Eucalyptus breeding with an additive-dominant model

We report a genomic selection (GS) study of growth and wood quality traits in an outbred F2 hybrid Eucalyptus population (n=768) using high-density single-nucleotide polymorphism (SNP) genotyping. Going beyond previous reports in forest trees, models were developed for different selection targets, namely, families, individuals within families and individuals across the entire population using a genomic model including dominance. To provide a more breeder-intelligible assessment of the performance of GS we calculated the expected response as...

Data from: Are Brazil nut populations threatened by fruit harvest?

Todd D. Bertwell, Karen A. Kainer, , Christina L. Staudhammer, Lúcia H. De Oliveira Wadt & Wendell P. Cropper
Harvest of Brazil nuts from the large, iconic tree Bertholletia excelsa generates substantial income for smallholders, providing a strong incentive to conserve the mature forests where it grows. Although much previous work has focused on the impact of nut harvest on new seedling recruits into B. excelsa populations, the connection between harvest rates and long-term population stability is still unclear. Moreover, there is additional uncertainty for Brazil nut management in terms of population response to...
