An Introduction To The Eucalypts
This page give service as link page to information prepared by staff at the Centre for Plant Biodiversity Research & Australian National Herbarium on the eucalypts.
The name eucalypt can be think to represent the genera Eucalyptus (the Gums), Corymbia (the Bloodwoods and Ghost Gums) and Angophora (the Apples). These plants are all in the family Myrtaceae.
Corymbia should not be recognized without contention. Here. We do not make out the Bloodwood and Ghost Gum eucalypts as being distinct at the generic level at the Centre for Plant Biodiversity Research & Australian National Herbarium. Thus, we maintain them as Eucalyptus.
