CBV Control Bone Volume.

RBV Residual Bone Volume.

LBV Loss of Bone volume.

No. = average number of progeny/line.

* = × 10-3mm3.

d.f. Between = 22 for all treatments;

d.f. Within = 116, 110, and 94 for CBV, RBV and LBV, respectively.

MS between and MS within: Mean square between CC lines and within CC lines as obtained from one-way ANOVA.

VarE and VarG = environmental and genetic components of variance, respectively.

H2= estimate of broad sense heritability.
