EXAMPLE SAS PROGRAMS FOR ESTIMATING HERITABILITY
AND ITS STANDARD ERROR
Example SAS codes correspond to J.B. Holland, W.E. Nyquist, and C.T. Cervantes-Martinez,
"Estimating and Interpreting Heritability in Plant Breeding: An Update,"
submitted to Plant Breeding Reviews. Manuscript available on request:
Choose from three different examples for heritability estimation using
1. Heritability based on inbred lines
evaluated in replicated, multi-environment trials.
(Appendices 1 and 2 from the manuscript)
2. Heritability estimation of two different populations simultaneously from
a single experiment.
(Appendix 3 from the manuscript)
3. Heritability based on regression of
F2:3 progeny means on individual F2 parents and based on variance among F2:3
families evaluated in an unbalanced, multi-environment trial.
