Eucalyptus globulus Labill and hybrids thereof have low lignin content, favoring cellulose extraction, but are often recalcitrant to clonal propagation. This work analyzed biochemical and morphological changes during adventitious rooting of mini-cuttings of E. globulus × maidenni obtained from mini-stumps cultured in drip fertigated sand bed or intermittent(More)
Adventitious rooting is a complex developmental response affected by genetic and environmental factors. Radiation quality effects on adventitious rooting depend on characteristics such as species, growth stage, irradiance, spectral quality, and time of exposure. Eucalyptus is an essential genus for the paper industry, and high yield plantations depend on(More)
Background Eucalyptus globulus and its hybrids are important for the cellulose and paper industry, mainly due to their relatively low lignin content. However, rooting of cuttings of this species is often recalcitrant and exogenous auxin application is necessary for adventitious root development. Auxin plays a central role in rooting capacity, which is(More)
