Where to from here with R&D to underpin plantations of high-value timber species in the 'seasonally-dry' tropics of northern Australia? Proceedings of a workshop organised by Private Forestry North Queensland and Queensland Department of Primary Industries and Fisheries, Townsville, Australia, 9-11 May, 2006, 2006, pp 1-25
AbstractFull Text

Very little work has been done in determining plantation productivity in African mahogany in the Northern Territory. This paper reports growth in a series of provenance trials planted annually from 1970/71 to 1972/73 at Gunn Point near Darwin, and measured in 2000. Supplementary growth data was...

AbstractFull Text

Mastotermes darwiniensis Froggatt (Isoptera: Mastotermitidae) is a significant termite in native eucalypt forests of northern Australia. It can cause major damage to wood in service, and infests living trees in native and planted stands in areas that have established colonies. Khaya senegalensis...

AbstractFull Text

Most tree species in the Meliaceae family such as African mahogany (Khaya senegalensis) and red cedar (Toona ciliata) are identified as high potential quality timber tree species in agroforestry systems in tropical Australia. However, their quality and quantity of timber production are affected by...

AbstractFull Text

African mahogany (Khaya senegalensis), along with all members of the Family Meliaceae, subfamily Swieteniodeae, is attacked by Hypsipyla shootborers. These insects are the greatest deterrent to the growth of these high value timber trees throughout their natural range. Hypsipyla robusta is present...

AbstractFull Text

African mahogany Khaya senegalensis is the favoured species for high-value plantations in the Top End of the Northern Territory because it has outperformed others in extensive trials over 40 years. Despite its vigour, Khaya is characterised by poor form that may be related to its genetics,...
