Growth dynamics in a mixed-species plantation of Eucalyptus globulus and Acacia mearnsii
Aboveground biomass was twice as high in mixtures of Eucalyptus globulus and Acacia mearnsii when compared to E. globulus monocultures after 11 years. This was attributed to increased nutrient availability and accelerated rates of N and P cycling in mixtures. This study examined whether the increase in aboveground biomass production was associated with an increase in total productivity (both above- and belowground), a change in C partitioning (from below to aboveground) or both. Total annual...[Show more]
