Effect of soil biota on growth and allocation by Eucalyptus microcarpa

Bourne, Mark; Nicotra, Adrienne; Colloff, Matthew J.; Cunningham, Saul


We examined growth of Eucalyptus microcarpa seedlings in soil collected from four sites in southeastern Australia, in which retired pasture land has been revegetated with mixed plantings of Eucalyptus and Acacia species. Revegetation of farm land in southeastern Australia is an area of major investment. The focus of the study was to examine the influence of soil biota on seedling growth and its possible interaction with soil enrichment from a legume (Acacia) and decomposition rates.
