This deterministic software allows modeling of all related breeding structures, as well as genetic and economic parameters, to account for complex breeding programs
with a special emphasis on genomic information.
Sweet Sunrise (U.S.PP 25,223) is a new strawberry cultivar from the Corvallis breeding program
, which is led by ARS plant geneticist Chad Finn.
Reproductive success rates less than 100% are a challenge for captive abalone breeding programs
(Lemay & Boulding 2009) and can be expected to be as low as 40% in a commercial setting (Elliott 2000).
However, with DFTD continuing to ravage populations in Tasmania, it is feared that the small scale breeding programs
may not be enough to save the species from extinction.
The finding is significant for breeding programs
that aim to restore populations of endangered kangaroos and wallabies.
Black Diamond is a thornless blackberry cultivar recently released from the USDA-ARS blackberry breeding program
. This cultivar has a number of outstanding characteristics, including large, uniformly shaped firm fruit; a high yield; good processing quality, an excellent ability to adapt to machine harvesting and good disease tolerance.
The Emirates Falconers' Club is the organisation representing falconers of the United Arab Emirates and for the past two editions of the festival has contributed to the travel and accommodation costs of less well-funded falconry countries.The International Fund for Houbara Conservation (IFHC) was recently established and aims to protect the Houbara Bustard through captive breeding programs
, educational outreach and international alliances with fellow conservationists.
Transformed CTV-resistant germplasm and breeding lines can be used in conventional breeding programs
to create new cultivars that carry and express the resistance genes.
zoos began captive breeding programs
for the mountain bongo in the 1960s in an effort to save the species.
Incubation of Reptile Eggs is a scientific account that collects available information and experience from a wealth of experts concerning the proper incubation of reptile eggs, knowledge that is vital to the success of captive breeding programs
that are one defense against species extinction.
These costs are usually beyond the resources of public breeding programs
and, therefore, are not currently used in most cultivated plants.
Most breeding programs
for loblolly pine in the southern United States are conducted in cooperative breeding programs
at one of three institutions: North Carolina State University, The University of Florida, and Texas A & M University.
InfoExpo Focus: Dairyland Seed Company is a recognized leader in its seed plant breeding programs
, spending 15 percent of its annual revenues on research, about twice the industry average.
These varieties have evolved from the same ancient tradition of seed saving as heirloom varieties, but often were further refined by public breeding programs
The paper reopens an old debate about whether breeding programs
to save endangered species should focus on MHC genes, says Bob Vrijenhoek of the Monterey Bay Aquarium Research Institute in California.
