Abstract

Variability of specific leaf area (SLA) across taxa, sites and crown zones was determined for four sub-tropical hardwood species, Eucalyptus grandis, E. cloeziana, E. argophloia and Corymbia citriodora ssp. variegata, growing in south-eastern Queensland. Mean SLA values were stable amongst those taxa sampled on dry sites but varied markedly between provenances of E. grandis on a moist site. Mean SLA did not vary significantly with crown zone in any of these four sub-tropical eucalypts, which is in contrast to that observed in temperate species, both in Australia and overseas. A provenance of E. cloeziana from a moist coastal site exhibited the largest SLA of all taxa studied.
