Introduction trial of Acacia sieberiana in Bihar


, : Introduction trial of Acacia sieberiana in Bihar. Indian Journal of Forestry 16(4): 347-349

Trials have been conducted with Acacia sieberiana, a native of Senegal, in Ranchi, Bihar. The species was first introduced in 1970 and was again tried in 1986, from the seeds obtained from the 1970 plantation. The mortality was 30-45%. Growth data are given for the 22 and 5.5-yr-old plantations, and compared with data for Acacia auriculiformis. The data suggest that A. sieberiana performs best in terms of annual volume increment.

A study was made of 7 samples of gum of A. dealbata and 4 samples from A. sieberiana from Australian and South African sources. From the analytical results it must be concluded that much of the data published earlier cannot be regarded as typical...

The structure of dihydroacacipetalin was established, primarily on the basis of NMR and mass spectral data. The compound co-occurred with acacipetalin and was also derived from L-leucine in A. sieberiana var. woodii.
