  • descriptionAbstract

    This research was conducted at the Eucaliptetum of the Universidad Autónoma Chapingo. The objective was to study the effect of fire on diameter growth of Eucalyptus camaldulensis Dehnh in forest plantations. A randomized complete block experimental design was used with three replications. The treatments were low intensity prescribed burn and control. The data were analyzed with analysis of covariance, using Proc Mixed of SAS®. The dependent variable was the annual increment in diameter with bark from 2000 to 2001. The covariate was the initial diameter. The annual increment in diameter was equal to 0.30 cm for the control, which exhibited statistically significant differences (p=0.0492) when compared with the prescribed burning treatment, where this variable had a value of 0.48 cm.
