Foliar chemistry of juvenile Eucalyptus grandis clones does not predict chemical defence in maturing ramets
Wallis, Ian; Smith, Helen J; Henery, Martin; Henson, Michael; Foley, William
The tendency for managers of eucalypt plantations to plant large, homogeneous (i.e. clonal) stands presents a new suite of problems. Perhaps foremost among them is the elevated risk of disease or predation. One way to counter this risk is to select material with high natal resistance, such as material with high concentrations of plant secondary metabolites. This would be much simpler if we could predict future defences from the chemistry of juvenile plants. The present study aimed to determine...[Show more]
