Statistical methods in animal improvement: historical overview

, : Statistical methods in animal improvement: historical overview. Advances in statistical methods for genetic improvement of livestock: 2-14

This review is restricted primarily to some history of the development of methods for evaluation of animals. It deals with linear models, with emphasis on missing subclass problems. Some topics covered are as follows: selection index and its pioneers, including Wright and Lush; analysis of variance, particularly as related to variance estimation and Max. Likelihood; the formalised selection index of Smith and Hazel; unequal numbers analysis.
