Essential oil constituents of Eucalyptus camaldulensis and E. tereticomis were studied
for their comparison. Essential oil of E. tereticomis, contains 46 compounds of which
1,8-cineole (39.7%) is the major constituents followed by terpinyl citronellol (7.9%),
cyclohexanol (7.8%) and thujene (6.1%). The essential oil of E. camaldulensis contains 27
compounds containing p-cymene (34.0%) and a-phellandrene (23.0%) as major constituents
followed by 1,8-cineole (7.3%) and a-pinene (6.5%).


The growth and biomass production of 17 provenances of Acacia mangium were
studied at the age of 5.5 years at Keochia Silvicultural Research Station, Chittagong.
The provenances showed significant differences in survival, height and diameter
(dbh) growth. In terms of height and dbh, Boite PNG provenance has shown the best
performance among the 17 provenances. But the provenance Iron Range QLD,
produced maximum (15.7 t/ha/yr) above-ground oven-dry biomass followed by
NW of Ingham QLD (11.8 t/ha/yr).
