Abstract

Carbon assimilation, foliar N concentration and instantaneous transpiration efficiency were measured in 3.5 year old plantation Eucalyptus globulus in a N fertiliser trial in the lower south-west of Australia. N application increased foliar N and carbon assimilation. The efficiency of use of transpired water in assimilating carbon also increased with N addition. These results indicate improved performance at the leaf scale. However, the effect of enhanced canopy size on trees well-supplied with N growing in water limited environments needs to be assessed.
