About The Book

Statistical Techniques in Quantitative Genetics attempts to synthesize the basic principles of quantitative genetics with the concepts and methods of breeding.

It provides full derivations of almost all the formulae for better understanding of their implications and appreciation of the subject. Solutions to wide-ranging problems in animal breeding with particular attention to the needs of developing countries have been included. An exhaustive bibliography to help those readers who are interested in a deeper study of the subject has been given at the end of the text.

The book would be of use to senior students of plant and animal genetics, statisticians and to breeders and research workers.
