Genetic improvement of Eucalyptus amplifolia for frost-frequent areas

Genetic improvement of Eucalyptus amplifolia for frost-frequent areas

Australian Forestry 1992; 54(4): 212-218

Sixty-nine Eucalyptus amplifolia seedlots (from 4 previously tested provenances and 65 half-sib progenies from selected trees in 11 Australian provenances) were established in September 1986 at Gainesville, Florida, measured periodically for growth and frost-tolerance, and converted in August 1989 to a seedling seed orchard on the basis of sib and individual superiority. Provenance variability was significant for seedling and second-coppice survival and frost-tolerance.
