Effect of reduced light during autumn and winter on snow gum seedling establishment

Egerton, John James Gillanders

Description

The present study tested whether eucalypt seedlings benefit from a reduction in irradiance when growth is limited by low temperatures. Growth of snow gum (Eucalyptus pauciflora Sieb. ex Spreng.) seedlings was studied for five consecutive seasons in a treeless pasture at 1000 m elevation where frost is common. Seedlings were planted at the beginning of autumn on north and south sides of vertical panels transmitting 50 % incident sunlight. This planting...[Show more]
