Aspectos genéticos de curvas de probabilidade de postura em codornas
Rossi, Robson Marcelo;Martins, Elias Nunes;
Revista Brasileira de Zootecnia , 2010, DOI: 10.1590/S1516-35982010000800012
Abstract: it was evaluated in this work the components of (co)variance and heritability of the parameters of egg production curve in quails in a model of double stages: the first stage is composed of the adjustment of a nonlinear curve, and the second is composed of the assessing of the genetic parameters obtained by the animal model. it was used daily individual records from laying to 90 days, starting with the first egg in the batch, of 308, 374 and 378 birds from three lines. in each strain, there was no difference between the components of (co)variance neither heritability for rations containing different energy levels (2,900 or 2,500 kcal/kg me), indicating that there was no heterogeneity of variance. however, values of genetic correlations were in the order from 0.53 to 0.65 for the α parameter and, for β from 0.28 to 0.30, indicating one existing genotype x environment interaction. estimates of heritability, respectively in the three lines, for the α and β parameters in the high energy diet were 0.21 and 0.50, 0.12 and 0.49, 0.12 and 0.48, and for the low energy diet 0.23 and 0.50, 0.13 and 0.50, 0.10 and 0.47. estimates of the components of (co)variance and heritability were different among the lines, for the two curve parameters. one line showed higher heritability for the α parameter, indicating greater potential for changes by selection for production at the initial stage of laying. considering the β parameter, the three lines have the same potential.

Rossi, Robson Marcelo;Martins, Elias Nunes;
Revista Brasileira de Zootecnia , 2010, DOI: 10.1590/S1516-35982010000800011
Abstract: this study aimed to verify if the selection is influenced by partial observation of laying instead of observation of total daily posture. on the first state of analyses, through a bayesian model, it was considered as analyzed characteristics the parameters of laying probability curve in a model of random effects with function of logistic connection. on the second stage of the procedure, it was obtained the estimatives of (co)variance components and genetic parameters. it was observed an overestimation of the production mean curve for the total sample in systematic collections (collected once every 14 days, 1 or 2 times every 7 days) and partial (on 15, 30, 45, 60, 75 and 90 consecutive days). for the parameter that represents the beginning of laying (a), the heritability values were 0.54; 0.14; 0.12 and 0.07; and for the parameter that represents the laying evolution (β), they were; 0.36; 0.37; 0.40 and 0.47, respectively, in the systematic and total collections. in partial and total collections, respectively, the values were 0.04; 0.03; 0.06; 0.12; 0.17 and 0.25; 0.25; 0.33; 0.33; 0.32; 0.41 and 0.51. in the systematic collections, as heritability values for the parameters that represent the beginning of laying decreases, the other increases; however, as the sample size increases in partial collections, the values increase for both parameters. within the top 100 animals classified according to a mediated selection index, the correlation among the scores of selected animals in the sub-samples and the total sample is low (from -0.13 to 0.13) indicating that the used selection index is affected.

Crop Breeding and Applied Biotechnology , 2008,
Abstract: The cultivars Arbequina, Picual and Frantoio of Olea europaea are cultivated in severalMediterranean countries. In 1999, these cultivars were planted at three locations in the region of Coquimbo,an arid, Mediterranean-like area in Chile. A generalized linear modeling approach was used in view of thenon-normal distribution of the agronomic data sets. Fruit yield (harvests of 2002-2003), precocity (2002) andtree survival (after four growing seasons) differed significantly between the cultivars. Arbequina and Picualhad a positive effect on the yield. Picual was the earliest cultivar at two sites. The survival rate of Frantoio washigh at the three sites (90-100%), as opposed to Picual (56-83%). The approach of Generalized Linear Modelswas particularly useful where the assumption of normality was not satisfied. The selection of cultivars ispromising in this arid region of Chile, while the success will depend on the selection of well-adapted genotypesto a particular location.

Agrociencia , 2008,
Abstract: the olive (olea europaea l.) is an economically important species for countries that have mediterranean climate and has been an appropriate, useful alternative for intensive farming systems in the arid zones of chile. for this reason, the objective of this study was to determine the components of variance, broad-sense heritability, and prediction of genetic values using the bayesian techniques on twenty-eight olive clones in the southern part of the atacama desert. the algorithm of independent chains was used to estimate parameter distributions a posteriori. the field experiment was set up in 2000, and during six years six quantitative traits were monitored in different periods. estimations of heritability and associated credibility intervals (parentheses) were h2=0.50 (0.38-0.61), 0.50 (0.38-0.61), 0.81 (0.74-0.86), 0.53 (0.42-0.64), 0.26 (0.14-0.40), and 0.44 (0.17-0.65) for fruit production (2006), total fruit production (2003-2006), area of trunk cross section (2006), tree productivity (2006), alternation of production (2003-2006), and precocity (2003). genetic advance by direct selection varied from 16 to 55% with a selection intensity of 28.6%. pearson correlations, calculated between genetic values of alternation of production and production traits, were negative and significant. selection of olive clones for precocity would not generate any significant effect on production traits. moderate heritability for fruit production, alternation of production, and precocity suggest a positive response to the selection of olive clones under the environmental conditions of the southern part of the atacama desert.

Brazilian Archives of Biology and Technology , 2006, DOI: 10.1590/S1516-89132006000500006
Abstract: the requirements of lactating sows for total lysine and metabolyzable energy (me) to support subsequent reproduction performance were evaluated. one hundred and twenty sows were used. the treatments were constituted of eight diets (factorial arrangement of four levels of total lysine: 0.75, 0.90, 1.05 and 1.20%, and two levels of me: 3,250 and 3,400 kcal me/kg). there was interaction between lysine and me on the plasma urea nitrogen (pun), with linear decrease effect on level of 3,250 kcal me/kg, and quadratic effect on level of 3,400 kcal me/kg, with the lowest level of pun with 1.06% lysine. the reproductive performance in the subsequent farrowing was not affected by the lysine levels and me, hence, neither the total born nor the born alive differed among the treatments. there was no convincing information to support that the requirements of total lysine and me for lactating sows were higher than 0.75% and 3,250 kcal/kg.

Abstract: this work aimed to study the variability in flowering of five populations of eucalyptus cladocalyx established in the administrative region of coquimbo, northern chile. flowering was recorded as a binary response trait in 30-month-old trees. then, at first, a generalized linear model was fitted for analyzing provenance effect. subsequently, genetic variability was studied within the best provenance by bayesian inference via gibbs sampling. initially, two sites were considered: caracas and tunga norte, in the littoral and interior area of the choapa province, respectively. in the littoral area, only 1.3% of the trees evidenced flowering events, while in tunga norte, this value was 23.43%. for this reason, only interior site was considered. the provenance effect was significant (p < 0.01), with cowell (codified fdi-20411) being the population that evidenced a relative better flowering response, although it not was different of the trees from national plantations (fdi-illapel). however, trees from a local population evidenced a high variability, having a mean response similar to other provenances. the flowering trait analyzed within the cowell population, the selected provenance, was shown to be highly heritable (h2 = 52.3%). predicted genetic gain when considering two different breeding strategies varied from 36 to 40%. according to these results, it is possible that farmers can recover establishment costs of e. cladocalyx plantations as soon as possible whenever the selected trees are used for apicultural aims
