Eucalyptus calophylla Lindley exposed to two levels of sulfur dioxide continuously for 120 days in open top chambers, showed contrasting changes in resource partitioning. Exposure to 125 μg m−3 of SO2 had an apparent fertilization effect with increase in the weight of stems and total above ground plant weight whereas 261 μg m−3 had a toxic effect with a reduction in the total number of leaves. SO2 had no effect on leaf protein or chlorophyll concentration nor on visible injury.
