CO2 enrichment predisposes foliage of an eucalypt to freezing injury and reduces spring growth

Barker, D; Loveys, Beth; Egerton, John (Jack); Gorton, Holly; Williams, Warwick; Ball, Marilyn


Seedlings of Eucalyptus pauciflora, were grown in open-top chambers fumigated with ambient and elevated [CO2], and were divided into two populations using 10% light transmittance screens. The aim was to separate the effects of timing of light interception, temperature and [CO2] on plant growth. The orientation of the screens exposed plants to a similar total irradiance, but incident during either cold mornings (east-facing) or warm afternoons (west-facing). Following the first autumn freezing...[Show more]
