Managing Eucalyptus plantations under global changes
Eucalypt plantations cover approximately 20 million hectares worldwide and are expanding rapidly to provide the raw material for wood, paper, and biofuel products as well as large amounts of firewood and charcoal for domestic uses. Breeding programs and silvicultural practices must be revisited to face the ongoing global changes. Drought periods are predicted to increase in many regions as well as the cost of fertilizers (due to the scarcity of phosphorus and potassium world resources, and the cost of fossil energy needed to produce N fertilizers). Moreover, the development of pests and diseases should be a major threat in the future. Replacing large areas of pastures and crops by highly productive eucalypt plantations is likely to modify the carbon, water and nutrient cycles in tropical and subtropical landscapes, with ecological, economic and social consequences.
