    Item type: Journal Article • Journal: Southern Forests: a Journal of Forest Science
    We studied the productivity of Acacia auriculiformis plantations in South Vietnam over three successive rotations covering 15 years. The focus of our study was on the effects of inter-rotation management on stand growth and soil properties. Contrastin g slash and...
  2. Nitrogen fixation of <em>Acacia mangium</em> Willd. from two seed sources grown at different levels of phosphorus in an Ultisol, South Sumatra, Indonesia

    Nitrogen fixation of <em>Acacia mangium</em> Willd. from two seed sources grown at different levels of phosphorus in an Ultisol, South Sumatra, Indonesia

    Item type: Journal Article • Journal: Southern Forests: a Journal of Forest Science
    Phosphorus (P) is required to facilitate the fixation of atmospheric nitrogen (N) by leguminous species such as Acacia mangium. We studied the N fixation of A. mangium trees grown from two seed sources. These consisted of bulk seedlots collected from...
  3. Ecophysiology of <em>Acacia</em> species in wet–dry tropical plantations

    Ecophysiology of <em>Acacia</em> species in wet–dry tropical plantations

    Item type: Journal Article • Journal: Southern Forests: a Journal of Forest Science
    Selected tropical Acacia species are used extensively for short-rotation plantation forestry in many parts of Asia and, to a limited degree, in Australia. We explored leaf-level photosynthetic activity and leaf water potential (Ψleaf) of three field-grown Acacia tree species (aged...
  4. Role of site in the mortality and production of <em>Acacia mangium</em> plantations in Indonesia

    Role of site in the mortality and production of <em>Acacia mangium</em> plantations in Indonesia

    Item type: Journal Article • Journal: Southern Forests: a Journal of Forest Science
    In Indonesia, Acacia mangium plantations exceed 1.6 Mha contributing approximately 3.5% of the country’s GDP. The viability of these plantations is increasingly threatened by fungal pathogens, insect pests, squirrels, monkeys, elephants and wind damage. Studies indicate that the problem is...

  9. Nutritional evaluation of <em>Ficus thonningii</em> Blume leaves as ruminant livestock feed in the Ahferom district of Tigray, Ethiopia

    Nutritional evaluation of <em>Ficus thonningii</em> Blume leaves as ruminant livestock feed in the Ahferom district of Tigray, Ethiopia

    Item type: Journal Article • Journal: African Journal of Range & Forage Science
    We evaluated the fodder quality of Ficus thonningii Blume in the Ahferom district of Tigray, Ethiopia. Determination of foliar macronutrients and proximate chemical compositions was undertaken using five diameter classes (11–20, 21–30, 31–40, 41–50 and 51–60 cm at breast height)...
