To study the biochemical responses of eucalyptus species that differ in their efficiency in soil P absorption, as well as how low availability of this nutrient affects wood, the main product of this crop. For this purpose, there will be made analyzes of metabolomics, lipidomics, enzymatic activities, as well as the study of signaling mediated by hormones between roots and aerial parts and changes in the components of the cell wall
