An outstanding reference that we overlooked on plant populations is the very detailed review of Nyquist (1991, Estimation of Heritability and prediction of selection response in plant populations. Critical Reviews in Plant Sciences, 10: 235--322). This is very highly recommended.
Pedigree Viewer is a Windows program by
by Brian Kinghorn (Dept of Animal Science, University of New England, Australia) for graphically displaying large pedigrees, and computing inbreeding coefficients.

KIN is a DOS based computer package by Nick Tinker
(Department of Plant Science, McGill) for Computing Kinship Coefficients. Pedigree data can be entered using
descriptive names for individuals of lines of plant or animal species. From this data, KIN computes the kinship coefficinet between pairs of specified
individuals or lines. Options are available to accommodate pedigrees that contain inbred or partially inbred progeny.
- CERVUS is a Windows 95-based application written by Tristan Marshall for likelihood-based parentage inference using codominant marker data. It can be used to calculate allele frequencies, run simulations to determine critical values of likelihood ratios and analyse parentage in populations of animals and plants. The simulation system may also be used to estimate the resolving power of a series of single-locus marker systems for parentage inference. Uses the approach of Marshall, TC, Slate, J, Kruuk, LEB and Pemberton, JM (1998). Statistical confidence for likelihood-based paternity inference in natural populations. Molecular Ecology 7(5): 639-655.
