Does soil nitrogen influence growth, water transport and survival of snow gum (Eucalyptus pauciflora Sieber ex Sprengel.) under CO2 enrichment?

Atwell, Brian J; Henery, Martin L; Ball, Marilyn

Description

Eucalyptus pauciflora Sieber ex Sprengel. (snow gum) was grown under ambient (370 L-1) and elevated (700 L-1) atmospheric CO2 in open-top chambers (OTCs) in the field and temperature- controlled glasshouses. Nitrogen applications to the soil ranged from 0.1 to 2.75 g N per plant. Trees in the field at high N levels grew rapidly during summer, particularly in CO2-enriched atmosphere, but suffered high mortality during summer heatwaves. Generally, wider and more numerous secondary xylem vessels...[Show more]
