Nutrient cycling in a mixed-species plantation of Eucalyptus globulus and Acacia mearnsii

Forrester, David; Bauhus, Juergen; Cowie, Annette

Description

A doubling of aboveground biomass production has been observed in mixtures of Eucalyptus globulus Labill. and Acacia mearnsii de Wildeman when compared with monocultures after 11 years of growth. This study examined to what extent increased nitrogen (N) availability and accelerated rates of nutrient cycling may contribute to increased growth in mixtures. Monocultures of E. globulus (E) and A. mearnsii (A) and mixtures of these species were planted in a species replacement series: 100% E, 75% E...[Show more]
