Title Measurements of Japanese quail (Coturnix japonica) from an artificial selection experiment for relative egg size
Downloaded 1 time
Description Excel file with 4 sheets, containing data collected from replicated divergent artificial selection lines for relative egg size, created in a captive population of Japanese quail (Coturnix japonica) at the University of Zurich. The first sheet contains information about subsequent sheets. The second sheet contains data mean values for each generation, repeat and line combinations for all traits used in analysis. The third sheet contains data of dried egg components from the fourth generation of the selection lines. The fourth sheet contains data of laying intervals from the fourth generation of the selection lines.
