Seedling Tolerance of Three Eucalyptus Species to a Short-term Flooding
What is it about?
Research was conducted at Curtin University (Western Australia) to assess the seedling tolerance of three species Eucalyptus, gomphocephala DC (Myrtaceae) (common name ‘Tuart’), Eucalyptus marginata Sm.
Why is it important?
This study investigates the impact of waterlogging response on seedling growth and physiological characteristics in three tree species; namely, Corymbia calophylla, Eucalyptus marginata and Eucalyptus gomphocephala. As discussed, physiological characteristics are greatly influenced by environmental condition in which plant is grown, also this study aimed to compare waterlogging tolerance of these three seedling tree species under the same nursery condition.
