About this book

Provides current reviews from active researchers in many disciplines (evolutionary history, genetics, modelling, ecopshysiology, reproductive ecology, etc). Together these reviews shed light on the reasons for the great success of eucalypts in Australian environments, and provide a comprehensive summary for comparison with the ecology of major woody plant genera in other continents.

'A splendid ecological overview for this massive and dominant Australian genius.' TAXON ' ! I recommend this book to anyone seeking information on the ecology of eucalypt and/or of eucalypts ecosystems'. Journal of Vegetarian Science ' ! it fills a vital need as part of any reference collection, because of the centrality of its subject and the breadth, currency and authority of its content.' Deirdre Slattery, Department of Outdoor Education and Nature Tourism
