Abstract:

Selection for a quantitative trait often continues for several cycles, as in the successive annual screening of a plant population in the process of developing new varieties. With plant selection, as with most other selection problems, the trait x being selected for cannot be measured without error, and actual selections are based on the observation y x e where e is the error chance variable and follows a normal distribution.
