About this book

There are nearly 300 species of Melaleuca in Australia and South-East Asia. Melaleucas: Their Botany, Essential Oils and Uses is the first attempt to compile a comprehensive account of their taxonomy, essential oils, silvicultural characteristics and uses. Detailed descriptions and natural distribution maps are provided for each species. A companion database ("Melaleuca oil profiles") contains more detailed analyses of the leaf oils, which will be of use to people interested in developing cottage industry or commercial productions of oil.
