The unprecedented firestorm that tore through eucalypt
forest, woodland, grassland and pine plantations, and into several Canberra suburbs in January 2003 has re-ignited debate on the best way to deal with fire in water-supply catchments.
Knowledge of temporal changes in annual rates of NNM and potential increases in rates of NNM along the planting lines due to strip cultivation will need to be considered when estimating N supply to eucalypt
plantations in Tasmania.
The possum, which occurs in all five of Lindenmayer's study landscapes, is uncommon in Victoria's wet montane forests, but thrives in the pine forests because the remnant eucalypt
patches create the fragmented, 'edgy' environment it prefers.
In response to a rapid expansion in the demand for eucalypt
fibre, there has been a significant increase in the area of eucalypt
plantations in Tasmania.
Thaumastocoris peregrinus was first reported as a pest in 2002 on eucalypts
in urban areas of Sydney, Australia (Noack & Rose 2007).
CSIRO scientists have identified 11 naturally occurring genetic markers that increase pulp yield and growth rate in eucalypts
Akeroyd MD, Tyerman SD, Walker GR, Jolly ID (1998) Impact of flooding on the water use of semi-arid riparian eucalypts
are Australian trees, but are now so much part of the South African flora (not itself rich in trees that produce useful timber) that their wood is not expensive, and it has the great advantage in being so naturally full of aromatics that it repels both fungi and insects.
The rapid growth of eucalypts
like the mountain ash, river red gum, and the Tasmanian blue gum (Eucalyptus globulus) has caused them to be widely planted throughout the tropics and subtropics, both for timber and for fuel," said author Herbert Edlin in the "Illustrated Encyclopedia of Trees.
Variability in the chemical composition of plantation eucalypts
(Eucalyptus globulus Labill).
Terry Allen's Trees, three lead-encased eucalypts
with speakers that project music and poetry, are nearly indistinguishable from live trees.
So it was sclerophyll country that birthed the first peoples; it was eucalypts
the white men found.
The commercially prominent eucalypts
include bluegum (Eucalyptus globulus), jarrah (Eucalyptus marginata), karri (Eucalyptus diversicolor), delgupta (Eucalyptus delgupta) and eucalyptus (Eucalyptus grandis).
The results of the present study correspond to an earlier study conducted by Doerr (1998), who found that high repellency levels can develop without fire in formerly wettable soil under eucalypts
in less than 2 years.
By 1870 eucalypts
could be found rimming the Mediterranean and shading the U.
