Aboveground and belowground interactions in mixed plantations of Eucalyptus globulus and Acacia mearnsii
This study investigated whether increased productivity in mixed plantations of Eucalyptus globulus Labill. and Acacia mearnsii de Wild when compared with monocultures could be explained by niche separation of the fine-root systems. For this purpose fine-root architecture, nutrient concentration, and fine-root distribution were examined in two horizons (0-15 and 15-30 cm) of mixed and pure stands. Investigations were carded out in 6.5-year-old plantations consisting of 100% eucalypts, 75%...[Show more]
