Multi-Trait Associated Selection of the Larix Construction Timber Superior Families


Article Preview

The growth and physical mechanics traits of 14 families made up of Larix and its crossbreeds are selected as the research object of this tractate, which go through genetic variation analysis, differentiation analysis, comprehensive index assessment and selection. Then, I take construction timber as the breeding target, synthetically assess the growth and mechanics traits, and finally discover the superior families of K5, K3, K5×L75-5 and K5×L77-3 that are excellent in both growth and mechanics traits.
