Summary In 1968, thirty stems of advance regeneration of E. pilularis, between 0.5 m and 3.0 m tall, which had been inadvertently knocked over by a silvicultural operation, were marked, measured and photographed. These stems had developed several upright shoots at variable distances from the butt. By 1978 twenty seven of the plants were still alive, and there was usually just one upright epicormic shoot surviving per plant. In all these cases it was the largest shoot on the stem in 1968 which…

Stand characteristics, understorey associates and environmental correlates ofEucalyptus tetrodonta F. Muell. forests on Gunn Point, northern Australia
An ordination study of 20Eucalyptus tetrodonta forest stands growing on deep earths in monsoonal Australia revealed two major gradients in understorey vegetation type, thought to reflect a complex fire-vegetation type interaction.
A site quality model for blackbutt (Eucalyptus Pilularis Smith)
A site quality model for blackbutt based upon height over age was developed using height data from 692 trees in experimental plots located along the North Coast of N.S.W. to allow initial stratification of plantations and regrowth stands into higher and lower site quality classes.
The effect of gap size on growth and species composition of 15-year-old regrowth in mixed blackbutt forests
Summary In north-eastern New South Wales (NSW) the Regional Forest Agreement process has transferred more than 400 000 ha of state forests to national park, and restricted silviculture to ‘single
