About this book

Australia's bush and cities alike are dominated by eucalypts, in habitats as diverse as desert dunes and snowy mountain tops. Eucalyptus' uses are varied: from commercial harvesting for essential oil, timber or fibre, to species with spectacular flowers that are prized by gardeners as ornamental trees. Many of these species may superficially look alike. It is not possible to identify eucalypts from their leaves alone, but with a few simple aids to identification most can be tracked down.

This easy-to-use book guides the reader through the key features: type of bark, appearance of buds, flowers and fruit – the gumnuts – and arrangement of bud clusters that will lead to the correct species name.
