Abstract

Plant growth and leaf-spot severity on eucalypt at different CO2 concentrations in the air.

The objective of this work was to evaluate the effects of increased air-CO2 concentration on plant growth and on leaf-spot caused by Cylindrocladium candelabrum in Eucalyptus urophylla. Seedlings were cultivated for 30 days at 451, 645, 904, and 1,147 µmol mol-1 CO2; then, they were inoculated with...
