Invasive Species Compendium

Detailed coverage of invasive species threatening livelihoods and the environment worldwide

Abstract

Genetic resources of Eucalyptus camaldulensis.

Abstract

A review of genetic variation in E. camaldulensis, particularly provenance variation, which illustrates the importance of selecting appropriate genetic material for new introductions, trials and breeding programmes. Growth rates, salt, drought and frost tolerances, leaf oil content and wood properties are some of the topics described and summarized, and future genetic developments for species improvement are suggested.
