Data Analysis
Data on biometric traits are being recorded at quarterly intervals. Observations on physiological parameters carbon dioxide concentration were also recorded.

clones (IFGTB Selections from Chengalepet, Chidambaram and Tiruchendur) have been assembled in the Vegetative Propagation Complex. Casuarina clones have been supplied to Forest Development Corporations, Forest Departments, Private Industries, ICFRE research istitutes and universities.
