About this book

Australia is one of the few countries in the world which is generally associated with a single group of plants – the eucalyptus. Eucalyptus is a huge genus including about 900 species and subspecies. More than 280 are described in Field Guide to Eucalypts, Volume 3 which covers the whole of Queensland, the Northern Territory and Western Australia north of 26° latitude. Volume 3 has been extensively revised, updated and expanded following the first edition published in 1994 Northern Australia provides a different set of environments from the southern regions of the continent. The northern part of all three states has a tropical climate with a long dry season followed by a short summer wet season. Descriptions have full colour illustrations of the tree, bark, buds and fruit and the botanical terms are explained and illustrated. Field Guide to Eucalyptus Volumes 1, 2 and 3 form the most authoritative reference to all species of eucalyptus in Australia.
