A theoretical model to predict effects of long-term selection for one trait on population mean, heritability and distribution of breeding value was developed. The model was extended to predict the effect of long-term selection on genetic correlation and further extended to predict the effects of long-term index selection. For the generalization of this theory, some special assumptions used in this study to simplify the problem have to be deleted in future.
