Dolomitic lime (200 g m−2) and micro nutrients were applied at planting time for all the plots. The Na content in the KCl fertilizer was 1.0% and the K content in the NaCl fertilizer was 0.05% (<15 mg K m−2 applied with the NaCl fertilizer). In 1‐month‐old leaves, the photosynthetic parameters (Table 1), N concentrations (Fig. Juvenile leaves disjunct, ovate, glossy dark green. 1b). The beneficial effect of K and Na supply on leaf photosynthesis was partly due to an increase in stomatal and mesophyll conductance. 3.2.1.3). Eucalyptus grandis E. grandis is probably most widely planted eucalypt for industrial wood production, with an estimated plantation area of about 2 million ha in 1987 (Burgess 1988). Relationship between Amax, Vc,max, Jsat, triose phosphate utilization (TPU), gs and gm and the percentage of leaf area with K‐deficiency symptoms of 2‐month‐old leaves of Eucalyptus grandis. The gs values were determined at a CO2 concentration of 400 μmol mol−1. [3][6][7], The Sydney blue gum (E. saligna) is very similar in appearance and overlaps E. grandis in the southern part of its range, but has narrower leaves and more bell-shaped gumnuts with protruding valves. Foliar K concentrations were significantly higher in +K than in C throughout leaf development, and foliar Na concentrations were higher in +Na than in C (Fig. Spectroscopy based novel spectral indices, PCA- and PLSR-coupled machine learning models for salinity stress phenotyping of rice. Influence of short-term macronutrient deprivation in maize on photosynthetic characteristics, transpiration and pigment content. The genome sequence of Eucalyptus grandis W. Hill ex Maiden has recently become available and provides a resource to extend our understanding of defence in large woody perennials. . Potassium mediates coordination of leaf photosynthesis and hydraulic conductance by modifications of leaf anatomy. Battie‐Laclau et al. The flowers have a strong scent and beekeepers assert that bees travel at least 32 km (20 miles) to some plantations. The incorporation of these results in process‐based models, as well as further studies dealing with the long‐term effects of Na supply on soil properties, might contribute to adapting future fertilization regimes to global changes in tropical Eucalyptus plantations. Introduction. The positive effects of K and Na supply on the relative chlorophyll content and RuBisCO activity in fully expanded leaves probably contributed to the strong increase in photosynthesis in +K and +Na compared to C. However, chlorophyll content was measured with a SPAD in our study, and chemical analyses of chlorophyll concentrations are needed to confirm that the differences between the treatments are significant. The leaves of Eucalyptus marlock come all the way down to the ground. We studied the consequences of K and Na supply on the morphological, anatomical, biochemical and photosynthetic characteristics of Eucalyptus grandis leaves (Hill ex. The percentage of leaf area with K‐deficiency symptoms was calculated from the ratio of pixels removed to the original number of pixels in each leaf. Seed germination time 4 to 21 days. Eucalyptus grandis grows as a straight and tall forest tree, reaching around 50 m (160 ft) tall,[3] with a dbh of 1.2 to 2 m (3.9 to 6.6 ft). 3). pulse labelling of field-grown eucalypt trees revealed the effects of potassium nutrition and throughfall exclusion on phloem transport of photosynthetic carbon Different letters indicate significant differences between treatments (P < 0.05) at each DAE. However, little is known about the physiological processes underlying the high growth response of E. grandis trees to K supply and, to a lesser extent, to Na supply. At maturity, it reaches 50 metres (160 feet) tall, though the largest specimens can exceed 80 metres (260 feet) tall. Collection of eucalyptus leaves. 2‐month‐old leaves over the rainy season (from January to June 2011). High‐performance liquid chromatography (HPLC) analysis conducted in both symptomatic and healthy peripheral leaf areas sampled in C showed that an anthocyanin pigment (cyanidin‐3‐O‐glycoside) was responsible for the foliar purple coloration in K‐deficient trees (data not shown). How Does Water-Stressed Corn Respond to Potassium Nutrition? Potassium fertilization increased the growth primary production (GPP) of E. grandis plantations more than the leaf area, suggesting that K also increased the canopy radiation‐use efficiency and CO2 assimilation rates per unit leaf area (Epron et al. The net CO2 assimilation (Asat) and stomatal conductance (gs) were measured at a photosynthetically active radiation (PAR) flux density greater than 1300 μmol m−2 s−1 (>93% of light‐saturation flux density in E. grandis leaves at the study site), near constant ambient CO2 concentration (Ca ≈ 380 μmol mol−1) with a portable gas exchange system (Li‐Cor 6200, Li‐Cor Inc., Lincoln, NE, USA) and a 1149 cm3 chamber equipped with a Li‐Cor quantum sensor. Each point represents one leaf measurement (six leaves sampled for each treatment). The LAI and tree growth were also intermediate between C and +K (Battie‐Laclau et al. 1956). Most of the Eucalyptus plantations in tropical and subtropical regions are established with the grandis species (pure or hybrid) on highly weathered soils with low levels of K (Gonçalves et al. We evaluated the influence of inclusion at different levels of Eucalyptus grandis × Eucalyptus urophylla fibers on the physico-mechanical properties of polymer composites. The leaf thickness was significantly higher in +K than in +Na at about 30 DAE, but the difference between the two treatments was no longer significant from 57 DAE onwards. It was significantly higher in +K and +Na than in C from 57 DAE onwards and higher in +K than in +Na at 57, 71, 127, 134 and 158 DAE. The dominant compounds were 1, 8-cineole (53.8%) in E.microtheca, α-pinene (21.4% and 30.4%) in E. tereticornis and E. grandis, respectively, and β-pinene (39.4%) in E.tereticornis. The amount of glucose was determined with reference to a standard curve prepared with solutions containing up to 10 mg mL−1 of d‐glucose. Nativity: It is commonly known as round-leaved moort or simply moort. Original Article Photosynthetic and anatomical responses of Eucalyptus grandis leaves to potassium and sodium supply in a field experiment Patricia Battie-Laclau1, Jean-Paul Laclau2,3,4, Constance Beri5, Lauriane Mietton6, Marta R. Almeida Muniz7, Bruna Cersózimo Arenque8, Marisa de Cassia Piccolo1, Lionel Jordan-Meille9, Jean-Pierre Bouillet2,4 & Yann Nouvellon2,10 2012). Exchangeable K and Na concentrations were, on average, 0.02 cmolc kg−1 in the 0–5 cm soil layer and <0.01 cmolc kg−1 from 5 to 1500 cm (Maquère 2008). Eucalyptus plantations cover about 20 million hectares and account for 8% of planted forests in the world (Food and Agriculture Organization of the United Nations 2011). This study assessed the effects of K and sodium (Na) supply on the diffusional and biochemical limitations to photosynthesis in Eucalyptus grandis leaves. Asat and gs were determined during the rainy season (between January and June 2011), on sunny days, at an ambient CO2 concentration and a photosynthetically active radiation flux density greater than 1300 μmol m−2 s−1. Contrary to the pattern found by Jin et al. Eucalyptus grandis grows as a straight and tall forest tree, reaching around 50 m (160 ft) tall,[3] with a dbh of 1.2 to 2 m (3.9 to 6.6 ft). Eucalyptus grandis Hill ex Maid is native to Australia and Acacia mangium Wild is native to Australia and Indonesia. 2012) and eucalypts (Almeida et al. 2011). How to grow eucalyptus. Barnea) as affected by drought. 2012). 2010) and their production is often increased in response to photooxidative stress (Agati et al. The flowers are followed by conical, pear- or cone-shaped fruit 4–10 mm (0.16–0.39 in) long and 5–8 mm (0.20–0.31 in) wide with the valves at rim level or slightly above. The stomatal size and frequency were measured in one tagged leaf sampled from each plot 1 month after emergence and two tagged leaves sampled 2 months after emergence. 2006), sugar beet (Marschner 1995), coconut (Bonneau et al. [2] E. grandis has been established in plantations in northern Uruguay and is sold under the trade name "Red Grandis". Using eucalyptus grandis leaves as material, the primary eucalyptus essential oil was extracted and purified by supercritical CO2 extraction and molecular distillation method respectively. Hill ex Maiden is in Australia from Newcastle, New South Wales northwards to Bundaberg, Queensland on lower slopes of fertile valleys and is usually found in open woodlands or Spectrochimica Acta Part A: Molecular and Biomolecular Spectroscopy. Objectives. Contrary to the general trend of lower SLA being associated with greater leaf thickness (Reich, Walters & Ellsworth 1997), leaves had higher SLA and were thicker in +K and +Na than in C (Fig. . The bark is smooth and powdery, pale- or blue-grey to white in colour, with a skirt of rough brownish bark for the bottom 1–4 m of the tree trunk. The leaves are dark green, glossy, and arranged alternately along the branches. The Eucalyptus grandis W. Hill ex Maiden BRASUZ1 genome is the first sequenced genome from the Myrtaceae family of angiosperms (Myburg et al., 2014). People use eucalyptus for many conditions including asthma, bronchitis, Diversity and distribution of the endophytic bacterial community at different stages of Eucalyptus growth. 57 6.1. The mineralogy was dominated by quartz, kaolinite and oxyhydroxides, and the soil was acidic (pH between 4.5 and 5). The sampled leaves were selected from the north side (full‐sun position) in the upper third of the crown of four trees from each plot. Objectives: The aim of the present study was to determine total concentrations of selected potentially toxic trace elements (PTEs) in gold mine tailings and leaves of Eucalyptus grandis and to identify extractable fractions of PTEs in leaves via boiling for 10 minutes in water, which is the process used to create TMRs to treat common cold and flu. It is hardy to zone (UK) 10. 5). Potassium supply may also affect photosynthesis through changes in leaf morphology and anatomy, as the specific leaf area (SLA) (Niinemets 1999; Han 2011) as well as the leaf thickness and density (O'Toole et al. It is found on coastal areas and sub-coastal ranges from Newcastle in New South Wales northwards to west of Daintree in Queensland, mainly on flat land and lower slopes, where it is the dominant tree of wet forests and on the margins of rainforests. 3), which point to strong functional links between nutrition, physiology and anatomy in E. grandis leaves. 2011). Nitrogen and phosphorus were applied 3 months after planting throughout the experiment (12 g N m−2, 3.3 g P m−2). 5b) and with a significant decrease in N and relative chlorophyll contents in C compared to +K and +Na (Figs 4 & 6). Six Eucalyptus species are listed under the NEMBA Alien and Invasive Species Regulations published on 1 August, 2014. Problems with eucalyptus trees are a fairly recent occurrence. The reduction in leaf area precedes that in photosynthesis under potassium deficiency: the importance of leaf anatomy. The photosynthetic rate limitations imposed by gs (Ls) and gm (Lm) were calculated for Ca = 400 μmol mol−1 using the response of A to Ci and to Cc, respectively (Farquhar & Sharkey 1982), as described by Jin et al. In situ Insights into the differences in leaf functional traits of heterophyllous Syringa oblata under different light intensities. The Properties of Eucalyptus Wood. Non-destructive measurement of soybean leaf thickness via X-ray computed tomography allows the study of diel leaf growth rhythms in the third dimension. Visible and Anatomic damages caused by glyphosate in Eucalyptus grandis leaves.pdf. We exposed leaves of Eucalyptus grandis inoculated and non-inoculated with PGPB Brevibacterium linens RS16 to two levels of heat stress (37 °C and 41 °C for 5 min) and quantified temporal changes in foliage photosynthetic characteristics and volatile emission rates at 0.5 h, day 1 and day 5 after the stress application. It increased in all the treatments until 85 DAE and then remained unchanged, except just before leaf abscission in C (Fig. Purple pixels corresponding to K‐deficiency symptoms were removed semi‐automatically from the sampled leaf area using an image processing software (Gimp 2, Free Software Foundation, Boston, MA, USA). Colds and respiratory problems. Leaves were sampled at 5 dates (34, 65, 103, 170 and 243 d after emergence, DAE). The relative limitations posed by stomatal conductance (Ls) and mesophyll conductance (Lm) as well as the Jsat/Vc,max ratio were not affected by leaf age or nutrition. The net CO2 assimilation rates were twice as high in +K and 1.6 times higher in +Na than in the C as a result of lower stomatal and mesophyll resistance to CO2 diffusion and higher photosynthetic capacity. Vertical bars indicate standard errors between blocks (n = 3) at each leaf age. Learn more. Wood and Briquette Density Under the Effect of Fertilizers and Water Regimes. More than 90% of germination and appressorium formation were observed 12 and 18 h, respectively, after inoculation for both genotypes. Cotyledons deeply bilobed with an indistinct vein along each lobe. Foliar trait contrasts between African forest and savanna trees: genetic versus environmental effects. Effects of KCl and NaCl supply on specific leaf area (SLA) (a) and leaf thickness (b). Leaves turn yellow and drop, and it is common to see eucalyptus trees dropping their branches as the disease takes hold. 5b), as reported for other plant species (Huber 1984; Zhao et al. The study was funded by FAPESP (project 2010/50663‐8), AGREENIUM (Plantotrem project) and USP‐COFECUB (Project 2011‐25). The calculation of the length of the arc VW (an estimator of circumference) in each 45° sector of the stem. In the morning of March 2015, Fresh eucalyptus leaves from mature Eucalyptus grandis and Eucalyptus crebra were sampled from Arboretum forest of Ruhande in the parcels number 220 and 24, respectively. Eucalyptus grandis, commonly known as the flooded gum or rose gum,[2] is a tall tree with smooth bark, rough at the base fibrous or flaky, grey to grey-brown. 2012), bean (Marschner, Kirkby & Cakmak 1996), soybean (Li et al. The Effects of Fertilization on the Growth and Physiological Characteristics of Ginkgo biloba L.. Lower leaf gas‐exchange and higher photorespiration of treated wastewater irrigated Citrus trees is modulated by soil type and climate. The leaves of the E. grandis clone used were hypostomatic (the mean frequency of paracytic stomata on the adaxial surface was lower than 5 mm−2, i.e. The upper and lower epidermal layers as well as the palisade and spongy layers were significantly thicker in +K and +Na than in C at 1 and 2 months after leaf emergence. Each section was observed at a magnification of ×400 under a light microscope, and photomicrographs were taken with a photomicroscope equipped with a Leica® DC 300F camera (Leitz, Wetzlar, Germany). A field experiment comparing treatments receiving K … A reduction of activity of starch synthase might be involved in the accumulation of soluble carbohydrates within the leaves observed with K deficiency as K is needed for activation of starch synthase (Wakeel et al. The starch content was higher and soluble sugar was lower in +K than in C and +Na, suggesting that K starvation disturbed carbon storage and transport. The concentrations of N, K, Na and starch decreased during leaf ageing, while the concentration of total soluble sugars tended to increase, for all treatments. Eucalyptus (/ ˌ juː k ə ˈ l ɪ p t ə s /) is a genus of over seven hundred species of flowering trees, shrubs or mallees in the myrtle family, Myrtaceae.Along with several other genera in the tribe Eucalypteae, including Corymbia, they are commonly known as eucalypts. In fully expanded leaves (2 months after leaf emergence), however, Amax, Vc,max, Jsat, TPU and gm were significantly higher in +K than in C, and the mean values of Amax, Vc,max, TPU and gm were intermediate in +Na. [12], Eucalyptus grandis has been grown successfully in plantations in wetter areas of Sri Lanka, particularly in the Badulla and Nuwara Eliya Districts. The white flowers appear from mid autumn to late winter from April to August. Adult leaves alternating up the stems, 8–18 cm long, 15–40 mm wide, glossy, darker green above and paler below. 2012) and xylem water transport (Nardini, Salleo & Jansen 2011) are known to be affected by K fertilization. leaves, 5) Eucalyptus grandis bark, 6) Eucalyptus grandis branches. Oil dots small and sparse, usually visible near the margin. The extractable fraction of PTEs after boiling leaves in water for 10 minutes (the process by which TMRs for the treatment of common cold and flu are made) was also determined. Jussara Bertho Fantinatti I; Roberto Usberti II. Family Myrtaceae Scientific Name Eucalyptus grandis W.Hill . Four sub‐samples were cut from each leaf, midway between the midrib and leaf margin, and near the leaf margin, on both sides of the midrib. The flower buds of Eucalyptus and other genera in the Myrtaceae family are structurally unusual. K‐deficiency symptoms are characterized in E. grandis trees by a purple coloration around the periphery of fully expanded leaves (Battie‐Laclau et al. The stomatal frequency was significantly lower in +K and +Na than in C at 1 and 2 months after leaf emergence, but the differences between +Na and +K were only significant 1 month after leaf emergence (Table 2). Each point represents one leaf measurement (six leaves sampled for each treatment). José Leonardo de Moraes Gonçalves and Rildo Moreira e Moreira (Departamento de Ciêncas Florestais, ESALQ, USP), Pr. The experiment was located on a hilltop (slope <3%) at an altitude of 850 m. The soils were very deep Ferralsols (>15 m) on Cretaceous sandstone, Marília formation, Bauru group, with a clay content ranging from 14% in the A1 horizon to 23% in deep soil layers. Stomatal conductance may be affected by stomatal frequency and morphology (England & Attiwill 2011). Adequate supply of potassium improves plant water‐use efficiency but not leaf water‐use efficiency of spring wheat. Available via license: CC BY-NC 4.0. This review synthesizes existing knowledge of defence mechanisms in model plants and tree species and features mechanisms that may be important for defence in Eucalyptus , such as anatomical variants … 2009; Luo et al. Resistance under Pb–HBCD Stress At the tenth leaf stage: leaves ovate, glabrous, oil dots sparse, small, visible with a lens, more common about the margin. A Shoot-Root Scale Approach Study under Controlled Conditions. The synergistic effects of sodium and potassium on the xerophyte Apocynum venetum in response to drought stress. In the morning of March 2015, Fresh eucalyptus leaves from mature Eucalyptus grandis and Eucalyptus crebra were sampled from Arboretum forest of Ruhande in the parcels number 220 and 24, respectively. Further research is needed to understand the relationship between tree growth and site productivity. Increases in area‐based chlorophyll concentrations with K fertilization have been observed in cotton (Zhao et al. Twelve tagged leaves were randomly collected in each plot between 5 and 6 pm. A similar pattern was observed in plots with Na supply, although to a lesser extent than for K fertilization. If you do not receive an email within 10 minutes, your email address may not be registered, Fax: +33 (0)4 99 61 21 19; e-mail: laclau@cirad.fr The total soluble sugars (monosaccharides and oligosaccharides) were quantified by high pH anion exchange chromatography with pulsed amperometric detection (HPAEC/PAD) using a Dionex‐DX500 system (Dionex Corporation, Sunnyvale, CA, USA) equipped with a CarboPac PA1 column. The mean Asat values in fully expanded leaves were 2 times higher in +K and 1.6 times higher in +Na than in C, from 218 to 368 d after planting (Fig. The 48 tagged leaves (2 per bud) for each treatment were monitored non‐destructively for leaf thickness and relative chlorophyll content. Photosynthesis and photosynthetic efficiencies along the terrestrial plant’s phylogeny: lessons for improving crop photosynthesis. Co-regulation of photosynthetic capacity by nitrogen, phosphorus and magnesium in a subtropical Karst forest in China. The SLA was not significantly different between the three treatments at 34 DAE (Fig. 2011) and should therefore be studied to determine the mechanistic basis of an increase in gm in response to K fertilization in E. grandis trees. Gas exchanges (net CO2 assimilation and stomatal conductance) were measured monthly on ca. Adding Na rather than K gave lower photosynthetic performances in K‐deficient soil. The bark of Eucalyptus grandis is usually rough at the base, otherwise very clean and smooth, adult leaves are discolorous being darker green above and paler below, usually glaucous buds and fruit and fruit with characteristic incurved valves when dehisced.

The basal part of the bark is rough and fibrous or flaky. For thousands of years, and throughout the world, preparations of eucalyptus have been included in traditional remedies. 2007). [2] It is the dominant tree of wet forest and rain forest margins,[3] either growing in pure stands or mixed with trees such as blackbutt (E. pilularis), tallowwood (E. microcorys), red mahogany (E. resinifera), Sydney blue gum (E. saligna), pink bloodwood (Corymbia intermedia), turpentine (Syncarpia glomulifera), brush box (Lophostemon confertus) and forest oak (Allocasuarina torulosa). The anatomical changes induced by K fertilization probably contributed to enhancing gm as the gas phase diffusion of CO2 within the leaf increases with the fraction of mesophyll volume occupied by intercellular air space (Tosens et al. Leaf areas with K‐deficiency symptoms led to anatomical, biochemical and photosynthetic injuries (Fig. EFEITO DA DISPONIBILIDADE HÍDRICA E DA APLICAÇÃO DE POTÁSSIO E SÓDIO NAS CARACTERÍSTICAS ANATÔMICAS DO LENHO JUVENIL DE Eucalyptus grandis. 1. The natural occurrence of Eucalyptus grandisW. Each leaf was weighed (±0.0001 g) immediately after collection to determine its fresh weight, scanned at 300 dpi and dried at 65 °C until the weight stabilized. The intermediate effect of Na supply on leaf anatomy and physiology shows that Na can only partially replace K in the nutrition of E. grandis trees. The mean gs values over the same period were 2.1 times higher in +K and 1.7 times higher in +Na than in C. While the mean values of Asat and gs were similar in +K and +Na from 218 to 295 d after planting, they were significantly lower in +Na than in +K thereafter. Muell., Eucalyptus tereticornis Smith and Eucalyptus grandis W. Hill ex Maiden were analyzed by means of GC and GC/MS. Role of Potassium in Governing Photosynthetic Processes and Plant Yield. All the data were processed using SAS v.9.2 (SAS, Cary, NC, USA). Maid). Journal of Agricultural and Food Chemistry. 2008). Leaves were fixed in FAA 50 (formalin–acetic–alcohol), evacuated with a vacuum pump, preserved in 70% alcohol and cleared in 5% aqueous NaOH in a 50 °C oven (Berlyn & Miksche 1976). Benyon (1999) also observed high rates (maximum 0.3 mm hr −1) of nighttime water loss on one night in an irrigated young Eucalyptus grandis plantation and estimated that nighttime leaf conductance was 20 times cuticular conductance. Potassium salts are the dominant osmotica responsible for guard cell turgor and stomatal movements (Raschke 1975). The leaves were thicker in +K than in C throughout their development (Fig. 2013). A residual analysis was performed to check whether the residuals met the assumptions of the anova, and, if necessary, raw data were log‐ or square root‐transformed so that residuals were homoscedastic and normally distributed. T… The peripheral area with purple coloration was separated from the central area of each lamina in order to compare the sugar and nutrient concentrations in symptomatic and healthy peripheral leaf areas. The photosynthetic parameters (Amax, Vc,max, Jsat, TPU, Jsat/Vc,max, gm, Ls and Lm) estimated from A–Ci curves in 1‐month‐old leaves were similar in C, +K and +Na (Table 1). Eucalyptus citriodora is an evergreen Tree growing to 45 m (147ft 8in) at a fast rate. Potassium Starvation Limits Soybean Growth More than the Photosynthetic Processes across CO2 Levels. A chromatography run was performed in an isocratic concentration of 150 mm NaOH and a flow rate of 1 mL min−1 at ambient temperature over 25 min. Objectives: The aim of the present study was to determine total concentrations of selected potentially toxic trace elements (PTEs) in gold mine tailings and leaves of Eucalyptus grandis and to identify extractable fractions of PTEs in leaves via boiling for 10 minutes in water, which is the process used to create TMRs to treat common cold and flu. Marcos Silveira Buckeridge (Departamento de Ecologia, IB, USP) and Jacques Ranger (INRA, BEF) for their contribution to this study. The aim of this study was to evaluate the effects of eucalyptus in treatment of established systemic infection with Candida albicans in normal and streptozotocin-induced diabetic rats. Soluble sugars were extracted from 0.01 g of powdered leaf samples in 80% ethanol (at 80 °C) for 20 min (Dubois et al. The whole of the KCl and NaCl fertilizations were applied 3 months after planting. Leaf photosynthesis is mediated by the coordination of nitrogen and potassium: The importance of anatomical-determined mesophyll conductance to CO2 and carboxylation capacity. Impact of K deficiency on leaves and siliques photosynthesis via metabolomics in Brassica napus. Concentrations of N (a), K (b) and Na (c) per kilogram of dry matter (DM) in leaves sampled in the control treatment (C), KCl (+K) and NaCl (+Na) treatments. Eucalyptus grandis is a plant of the humid subtropical and tropical regions of eastern Australia, it grows in areas with mean minimum temperatures during the coldest month ranging from 2 - 10°c and mean maximums near 29°c during the hottest month [ 303 Starch concentrations in E. grandis leaves increased in response to K fertilization as observed in lettuce (Luo, He & Lee 2012), but is contrary to the pattern found in cotton in a K‐deficient soil (Zhao et al. 2 Clones of Eucalyptus grandis have been selected and bred on the basis of unpalatability to the brown Christmas beetle (Anoplognathus chloropyrus) to minimise damage to plantations. [13] Many parameters of climate and soil are similar to eastern Australia, and it has grown well on plains as well as hills previously used for growing tea. The growth performance of plants can be improved by potassium (K) supply through an enhancement of stomatal movements (Marschner 1995; Lebaudy et al. 6). Vertical bars indicate standard errors between blocks (n = 3) at each leaf age. 4), soluble sugar and starch content (Fig. . Adult leaves with an alternate arrangement are; up to 17cm long, mostly lance-shaped or curved (falcate) with entire margins, shiny, mid-green on top, same colour beneath (concolorous), strong, firm in texture and scented when crushed (4 & 5). K and Na supply might also indirectly increase gs as stomatal conductance is often coordinated with leaf‐area‐based water transport capacity (Clearwater & Meinzer 2001), and both leaf area (Epron et al. Using stable isotopes, we traced the nutrient flux under different nutrient regimes between Eucalyptus grandis and its ectomycorrhizal symbiont, Pisolithus albus. The CO2 concentration in the chloroplast stroma (Cc) was calculated from the values of A, Ci and gm, and A–Ci curves were transformed to A–Cc curves (Sharkey et al. Field Spectroscopy of Plant Water Content in Eucalyptus grandis Forest Stands in KwaZulu-Natal, South Africa By ZAKARIYYAA OUMAR 203512193 Submitted in fulfillment of the academic requirements for the degree of Master of Science in the Discipline of Geography in the School of Environmental Sciences, Faculty of Science and Agriculture.
