Biographies

Robert Bruce M. Dun, along with Helen Newton Turner and Frederick Harold W. Morley, led a team of CSIRO and State Departments of Agriculture scientists during the 1950s to apply new techniques of animal breeding to the Australian Merino. These techniques depended on first determining what characteristics were required by the end consumers of wool, then investigating how they could best be measured, to what extent they were inherited, to what extent different characteristics were correlated and how they could be combined for selection. Dun was educated at the University of Sydney (BVSc, PhD).
