About this book

Eucalypts are used for the production of paper products, firewood, charcoal, potential feedstocks for bioenergy and biomaterials, as ornamentals and landscape trees and in land rehabilitation. Eucalypt breeding is at an early stage with many plantings being only at the first stages of domestication. The relatively small genomes of these species make the application of molecular geneticsapproaches attractive. The application of modern genomics will accelerate the development of improved eucalypts for a wide range of uses. Genetics, Genomics and Breeding of Eucalypts brings together diverse information on the genetics, genomics and breeding of these important forest species.
