Abstract

Abstract

Confidence statements for response expected from selection are needed. The first order approximation in Taylor's expansion was used to develop standard errors for heritability and expected progress. Both standard errors contain adjustments for level of heritability. They offer criteria for establishing approximate confidence intervals for these two estimated parameters.

The research was funded by the North Carolina Agric. Res. Serv., Raleigh.
