Variation In Basic Density, Fibre And Vessel Morphology Of Eucalyptus Tereticornis Sm. Clones

[Full Text]



P. Sreevani, R.V. Rao



Key Words: Basic Density, fibre and vessel morphology, clones, Paper and Pulp.



Abstract: The basic density, fibre and vessel morphology of five clones of Eucalyptus tereticornis developed by ITC Bhadrachalam were reported. The five clones represented by four trees each of four and half years old, were from Sarapaka, Andhra Pradesh. Significant variation have been found among the clones. Basic density is positively correlated with fibre length, vessel diameter and positively correlated with vessel frequency while other characteristics have no effect. The results obtained in this study have shown the suitability of raw material for paper and pulp where the required basic density is met with. Mainly these clones are primarily tried to meet the requirements of paper and pulp industry.
