Abstract

Flowering time in a base population trial of Eucalyptus globulus ssp. globulus was highly variable and under strong genetic control. Races from the east coast of Tasmania and the Furneaux Group flowered approximately 1 month earlier than races from Victoria and King Island. These racial differences in flowering time were inherited in an additive manner in interprovenance F1 hybrids, whereas the flowering time of interspecific F1 hybrids between E. nitens and E. globulus was more similar to the late-flowering E. nitens.
