Inheritance of Gum Yield and Other Characteristics of Slash Pine

This report presents preliminary estimates of heritability for several economically important traits of slash pine. They are considered preliminary because the progeny trees are not yet mature, relatively few parent trees are involved, and finally, because the experiments involved were not designed specifically for estimating heritability. However, the study includes observations from what is believed to be the oldest progeny test in the country that involves an appreciable number of individual tree crosses, and we believe the results will be useful.
