The use of composted wood waste as a peat substitute

, : The use of composted wood waste as a peat substitute. Acta Horticulturae (82): 79-86

Sawdust from Eucalyptus andrewsii, E. microcorys, E. pilularis, E. radiata, E. saligna, mixed Eucalyptus species, Tristania conferta and Tsuga sp., bark of Pinus radiata and expanded hardwood chips were composted with 6.24 g N/kg dry weight (except for the bark where 2.63 g N/kg were used) and a complete range of added nutrients. Nitrogen immobilization by the softwood Tsuga sp. (4.34 g N/kg over a 44-day period, supplied as NH4NO3) was less than in the hardwood sawdusts (average 5.5 g N/kg).

In all organisms, correct development, growth and function depends on the precise and integrated control of the expression of their genes. Often, gene regulation depends upon the cooperative binding of proteins to DNA and upon protein-protein inte...
