Relationships between growth, specific leaf area and water use in six populations of Eucalyptus microtheca seedlings from two climates grown in controlled conditions

Tuomela, K; Koskela, J; Gibson, Ann


To gain a better understanding of those parameters that control growth and productivity of Eucalyptus microtheca populations from seasonally dry to semi-arid sites in Australia we measured their total plant biomass, allocation of dry matter to roots and shoots, specific leaf area (SLA) and water use. For this purpose the seedlings were raised up to five months under three different pot moisture conditions applied by cyclical watering regimes. Young seedlings of six provenances of Eucalyptus...[Show more]
