Abstract

This research was conducted to find out the characteristics related with cocoon and egg yield and correlaitions between these important characters in B8 (Japan) and Tokai (Chinese) breeds of silkworm. The relation between mounting weight and cocoon yield traits and the possibility of using them in selection were also investigated.
