Abstract

Forest tree breeding in most species faces comparatively long testing times. Therefore efforts have been made since long to get reliable early predictions of tree performance. These predictions are biased by different biological influences which restrict the reliability. Some of the most important ones are:
  1. 1.

    Maternal influences due to seed weight, speed of germination etc.

     
  2. 2.

    Genotype x site interactions

     
  3. 3.

    Different developmental rhythms due to individual genotype combined with genetic differences in maturation stage.
