    Parameters were estimated from a progeny trial series established at two sites (25 years from planting) and their parents in a seed orchard (43 years from grafting). A standard half-sib analysis based on progenies and a parent–offspring regression was used for estimation of heritabilities. Rates of genetic diversity were inferred from allozyme allelic variation and used to compare differing seed crops that had originated from seed orchards under various seed production conditions with natural stands of western hemlock (Tsuga heterophylla (Raf.) Sarg). The supplemental mass pollination (SMP) technique was found to maximize both Ht and H0 when compared with unimproved wind.

    Adapted autochthonous stands are valuable for in situ conservation of genetic resources and as the main seed sources for artificial regeneration [].Therefore, there are two important aspects related to the genetic composition of the offspring: (1) the natural regeneration of the stand itself, and (2) the usage of the seeds for production and subsequent plantation of seedlings. Douglas-fir. BC Research with funding from Forest Renewal BC is attempting to transfer this technology to some of our other commercial conifer species in BC. The next useful polymorphic genetic markers are expected for lodgepole pine. References: Stoehr, M. And C. Newton. Estimation of natural selfing in a clonal row Douglas-fir seed orchard.

Seed set and the proportion of progeny due to self-fertilization in a Douglas-fir seed orchard Public DepositedCited by: 3. A total crown estimate of the proportion of viable progeny due to selffertilization from the six sampled clones was about 10 percent.

These results show that crown position of cones, top-pruning, and clonal variation are all factors which could influence orchard management practices and. The amounts of self-fertilization versus consanguineous matings (as measured by effective selfing) was estimated in a seed orchard of Douglas-fir, using progeny array data at six allozyme loci.

Reduction in the proportion of filled seeds (seed set) owing to selfing was approximately 30% for three of the trees and 93% for the fourth. Following mixed pollinations we did not observe an.

Similar findings were reported in a Douglas fir SO, the H e of natural and seed orchard parental population were also similar, though slightly lower in the seed orchard progeny where the clones.

A multilocus estimation procedure (Green et al., ), for example, revealed that about 8 percent of the viable pro geny produced in a year-old Douglas-fir clonal orchard were selfs (Omi, S. and Adams, W., Seed set and the proportion of progeny resulting from selffertilization in a Douglas-fir seed orchard, manuscript in preparation).

This is a very common kind of seed orchard, and the procedure employed is illustrated in Figure 2. Plus trees are of the same species but originate from different geographic regions. These are called "provenance seed orchards" by Andersson () who described one such seed orchard containing Swedish and Polish clones of Picea abies.

As a seed orchard practice, SMP is clearly shown here to decrease the self-fertilization rate of seed orchard trees by about 10%. By contrast, both pollen blowing and floral hooding had no effect on observed selfing rates. Our results will help to define the effectiveness of seed orchard practices and to increase gains by reducing selfing.

The objective of seed orchard management is to maximize the genetic gain while maintaining sufficient level of genetic diversity in the orchard’s crops; however, balancing these two parameters is a challenging task.
