<p>Black locust is an important tree species for the production of biomass in short-rotation plantations and agroforestry systems. As a pioneer species the tree grows under a wide range of conditions. In Central Europe, Robinia pseudoacacia L. is known to be relatively drought tolerant compared to other temperate deciduous tree species. Aim of the study was to evaluate the growth and ecophysiological performance of Black locust to long- term drought stress.</p>
