Growth Stress Differences in Eucalypts
Abstract:Definite patterns of longitudinal growth stress were shown to exist around stem circumferences of second-growth Eucalyptus regnans and E. obliqua trees. These stress variations seem to develop in response to requirements of the individual tree for support. It is hypothesized that trees may alter their pattern of stress to achieve small changes in vertical orientation. Large differences in mean levels of stress were shown among trees. These differences probably result from a combination of genetic and environmental variation. Forest Sci. 19:169-174.
