  issg Database: Ecology of Casuarina equisetifolia
Casuarina equisetifolia is a deciduous tree with a pine-like appearance.
Casuarina species are reported to tolerate annual precipitation of 6.4 to 43 dm, annual temperatures of 22.1 to 26.9°C, and pH of 5.0 to 7.7 (Duke 1983).
equisetifolia was introduced to Florida in the late 1800's and planted widely for the purposes of ditch and canal stabilization, shade, and lumber (Swearingen 1997).

Casuarina equisetifolia is probably the most invasive species in south Florida; it freely selfseeds in disturbed areas, and once established, may inhibit the growth of native species.
Casuarina glauca was originally planted in Florida as a supplement to C. equisetifolia, but was later discovered to be not as tolerant of salt in the air or soil as C. equisetifolia and therefore did not become established on the beaches of south Florida (Digiamberardino 1986).

 Welcome
One is the species Casuarina equisetifolia; there is also Casuarina glauca, and one that is thought to be a hybrid between C. equisetifolia and C. glauca.
Its Generic name Casuarina comes from the Malay word kasuari, their word for the cassowary, referring to the resemblance of the tree's “needles” to the Cassowary’s plumage.
The specific name equisetifolia is derived from the resemblance of the needles to horse hair, and glauca refers to a bluish waxy coating on the “needles.” In spite of its common name, Australian pine is not a true pine but rather a flowering tree.

Based on partial 16S sequences, we previously described a novel group of nonsymbiotic, acetylene reduction activity-positive actinomycetes which were isolated from surface-sterilized roots of Casuarina equisetifolia growing in Mexico.
An analysis of complete 16S rRNA gene sequences demonstrated that the two strains analyzed in detail are most closely related to actinobacteria in the Thermomonosporaceae and the Micromonosporaceae.

Casuarina plantations are worked under a clear-felling system, with a rotation of 7–35 years.
Casuarina equisetifolia fixes ca 60–230 kg N/ha/yr (Aspiras, 1981).
Keeping an interval of two years between felling and replanting, and planting of other trees such as Anacardium occidentale, Azadirachta indica, Pithecellobium dulce, Pongamia glabra, Sapindus laurifolius, and Syzygium cumini, along with Casuarina are recommended to segregate the plants, minimizing the spread of infection.

Recent taxonomic work has divided the family into 4 genera; Casuarina has 17 species native to Southeast Asia, Polynesia and Oceania, six are found in Australia.
Although they grow rapidly and quite tall (25 meters, 75 feet, or larger), she-oaks are minimalist trees able to survive under stressful environmental conditions.
Some Casuarina species are monoecious—staminate and pistillate flowers on a single plant; some are dioecious with the male and female flowers on separate plants.
