Dissertation Abstract / Summary:

Casuarina equisetifolia Linn.is native from Australia Eastward into Melanesia, extotic trees in peninsular India and coastal Southeast Asia. The present investigation was carried out ten good rooting and poor rooting clones of Casuarina equisetifolia were subjected to various biochemical analysis including starch, amylase, peroxidase and IAA oxidase. The result of the analysis revealed significant difference (P-1) better rooting clones, but greater in poor rooting clones (36.86 to 82.19 mg g-1). Similarly lesser content of amylase (0.003 to 0.065 mg g-1) were also present in good rooting as compared with poor rooting clones (0.033 to 0.080 mg g-1 of cladode tissue). Results also revealed that peroxidase and IAA oxidase did not exhibit any significant difference between the good rooting and poor rooting clones. Therefore, it can be concluded that starch and amylase plays a major role in rooting of Casuarina equisetifolia.
