Description

Australian landscapes are unique since they are dominated by a single hardwood species - the eucalypt. These leading authors have now identified over 1,000 species of the genus Eucalyptus and this volume contains the most remarkable of the regional collections and in particular, features the colourful eucalypts of Western Australia, which are extensively used for landscaping.

This volume covers species indigenous to the southern part of WA below 26 latitude, all of South Australia and NSW north and west of the Darling River. Important features are emphasised in bold and colour illustrations show the tree or mallee and its bark, buds, and fruit. Botanical terms are explained and illustrated. Since the first edition of 1990, many new species were discovered and existing names changed. Volume 2 is now revised and updated consistent with Vols. 1 and 3.

About the Authors:
In 1970, Ian Brooker joined the Forest Research Institute in Canberra, now part of CSIRO. His research since then has specialised in the Eucalyptus genus, especially its taxonomy. He has travelled widely throughout Australia collecting specimens, and has published 100 research papers, 180 leaflets, and four books, and is the principal author of "Forest Trees of Australia".

David Kleinig has been Ian Brooker's chief collaborator over many years, working on the EUCLID database and publishing several books on Eucalyptus.
