Multi-environment trial of trees, height / survival of 37 species at 6 sites in Thailand

Description

Multi-environment trial of trees, height / survival of 37 species at 6 sites in Thailand

Format

A data frame with 222 observations on the following 4 variables.

env

Environment factor, 6 levels

gen

Genetic factor, 37 levels

height

Height (cm)

survival

Survival percentage

Details

Planted in 1985 at six sites in Thailand. RCB with 3 reps. The data here is the mean of the three reps. Plots were 5 meters square with spacing 2m x 2m. Measurements collected at 24 months. The gen column in the data is actually seedlot, as some tree species have multiple seed lots. The trees are mostly acacia and eucalyptus.
