Family x site interaction in a progeny test of coastal Douglas-fir Luna-Lopez, Jose F.
Genotype x environment interaction in coastal Douglas-fir (Pseudotsuga menziesii var. menziesii (Mirb.) Franco) was evaluated for height at the 6th-, 7'11- and 124'. year and diameterat the 12th. year. Data collected from 15 families of the Experimental Project 708 of the BCMF were used. In addition, family stability was quantified using 4 different methods. Interaction was not statistically significant for any of the variables evaluated. These results support the findings of a previous study made by the BCMF in another set of families of the same program. Only 2 methods gave similar results when family stability was evaluated. In general, families kept a similar yield pattern for all the variables. The lack of statistical significance of the interaction together with the results obtained in the study previously mentioned, suggest the possibility of working with only one breeding population for this program.
