Abstract
    A standard method has been developed to produce F1-generation cysts from different zygogenetic strains and their cross-breeds. The F1 cysts were used to determine the quantitative heritability of the following characteristics: cyst hatchability, cyst diameter, larval growth, and temperature resistance of the freshly-hatched nauplii.Data are given for cysts produced from nine strains and seven cross-breeds. Important differences for all characteristics studied were noted between the cross-bred and the parental strains.
