filial generation explained - definitions

Recommended Posts

I got so confused I had to look this up...

from http://www.compusmart.ab.ca/kbush/definitions.htm

DEFINITIONS RELATING TO BREEDING PRACTICES

* PARENTAL GENERATION (P) is the generation from which the first cross in a series is taken. Usually, but not always, the parents are true breeding.

* FIRST FILIAL GENERATION (F1) consists of progeny/offspring from the parental generation. (e.g.) If you are the parental generation then your kids are the first filial generation.

* SECOND FILIAL GENERATION (F2) consists of progeny from the first filial generation (e.g.) Your grand kids.

I thought this deserved its own topic and would be easier to find and reference if it wasn't floating somewhere in the middle of my spawn log :P
