Selection of Corymbia citriodora for pulp productivity 1

  title={Selection of Corymbia citriodora for pulp productivity 1},
  author={Jeremy T. Brawner and Roger Meder and Mark J. Dieters and D. J. Lee},
10 Evaluation of a series of spotted gum (Corymbia citirodora) progeny trials, 11 established in the subtropical region of Queensland, Australia, was undertaken to 12 provide information for the development of advanced generation breeding 13 populations suitable for pulp production. Measurements of growth at two ages were 14 combined with assessments of wood density and pulp yield from a selected sample 15 of provenances to provide comparisons between provenances, to generate genetic 16… Expand

Figures and Tables from this paper


Genetic parameters for growth, wood density and pulp yield in Eucalyptus globulus
Estimates of the across-site genetic correlations for diameter and Pilodyn penetration were high, indicating that the genotype by environment interaction is low across the range of sites tested and supports the use of single aggregated selection criteria for growth and wood density across planting environments in Portugal.

Genetic parameters of red mahogany breeding populations grown in the tropics
Analysis of an overseas breeding population was undertaken to enhance current understanding of genetic parameters for E. pellita, suggesting that breeding value predictions of parents tested in first-generation provenance—progeny trials are less indicative of an individual's genetic merit than breeding values generated from second-generation trials.

Comparative Performance of Corymbia Hybrids and Parental Species in Subtropical Queensland and Implications for Breeding and Deployment
Relative performance of hybrid families growing on more than one site displayed consistency in ranking for growth across sites and analysis showed low genotype-by-environment interaction, providing insights regarding the choice of a future hybrid breeding strategy. Expand
Relationships between early growth and Quambalaria shoot blight tolerance in Corymbia citriodora progeny trials established in Queensland, Australia
Strong relationships between height and Quambalaria shoot blight damage assessments in these trials were evidenced by very high genetic correlations between the traits; therefore, selection for any of these traits could be used to identify more productive and QSB-tolerant populations. Expand
Breeding objective for plantation eucalypts grown for production of kraft pulp
A long-term production function for unbleached eucalypt kraft pulp, incorporating all growing, harvesting, transport, and pulping costs, and variable capital and operating costs, was used toExpand
Achievements in forest tree genetic improvement in Australia and New Zealand 2: Development of Corymbia species and hybrids for plantations in eastern Australia
The establishment of provenance seedling seed orchards of three spotted gums and cadaga (all species of Corymbia ex Eucalyptus) is described, revealing many hybrid families have significant advantages in growth and tolerance to disease, insects and frost, and can be vegetatively propagated. Expand
The CAMCORE international provenance/progeny trials of Gmelina arborea: genetic parameters and potential gain
Early results from the provenance/progeny trials in Colombia, Costa Rica, Guatemala, Indonesia, Mexico and Venezuela, which were the first international collections of gmelina that were by mother tree and also the first ever to be made in Myanmar, show sufficient genetic variability to make good gains in breeding.

Evaluation of the Pulpwood Quality of 13 Lesser-known Eucalypt Species
The kraft pulping and papermaking potential of 13 eucalypt species proposed for use in farm forestry production systems was assessed in relation to existing commercial pulpwood resources. SamplesExpand
Growth, Form and Quambalaria Shoot Blight Tolerance of Spotted Gum in North-eastern New South Wales, Australia
Overall, Queensland provenances had significantly higher mean diameter and height than those from New South Wales (NSW), although there were several superior NSW families, and some mediocre provenances contained superior families potentially useful for breeding. Expand
Age trends in genetic parameters for growth and wood density in Eucalyptus globulus
Comparable univariate estimates of selection- and harvest-age heritabilities for diameter masked changes in genetic architecture that occurred with stand development, whereby the loss of additive genetic variance through size-dependent mortality was countered by the accentuation of additive Genetic differences among survivors with age.
