A carbon fixation system by large-scale afforestation in arid regions is being researched near Leonora in Western Australia. A tree species that naturally grows in the area, E. camaldulensis, has been planted at the afforestation trial sites. In arid regions, water use efficiency by a tree, defined as the ratio of its organic dry matter production to its water consumption, is an important factor in tree growth for establishing a strategy for afforestation. In this study, the soil water content… CONTINUE READING
