Eucalypts of Southern Australia, is an extension of the first
EUCLID, Eucalypts of South-Eastern Australia, which
was published in 1997 and again in 2000 as a revised edition.
like to thank those people acknowledged in the earlier editions
of EUCLID as they have contributed to this version through their
association with the first editions.
Some of these people have continued to assist us and numerous others
have also made significant contributions. For this edition of EUCLID
we wish to acknowledge the following people or institutions.
could not have been completed without financial support from the
Bushcare program of Environment Australia. We would like to thank
Judy West, Director of the Centre for Plant Biodiversity Research
for her efforts in facilitating this grant and Nick Dexter, Annie
Boutland and Denise White, the Environment Australia project coordinators.
Jeremy Burdon, Assistant Chief, CSIRO Plant Industry, for his continued
support of this project and also Randy Bayer, CSIRO Plant Industry
subprogram leader, who was EUCLID project manager.
like to thank Dean Nicolle from Flinders University for the significant
contribution that he has made to this project. His expert knowledge
of the eucalypts of southern Australia has assisted us greatly,
especially with field work in the Great Victoria Desert. He also
gave us access to his Currency Creek Arboretum for testing the key
on numerous cultivated species.
especially grateful to Helen Hewson, who meticulously proof-read
every species fact sheet and to Judy West who checked the character
notes. Both made many useful suggestions on ways these could be
improved. Pennie Tyrell produced most of the distribution maps from
the Australian National Herbarium database and provided much encouragement
throughout. We would like to make special mention of Heidi Ottey
who generously gave up her time to write a computer program to formulate
all of the species fact sheets.
Thiele has also made a significant contribution to EUCLID. He produced
most of the excellent and instructive line drawings and, along with
Matt Taylor and Dan Campbell from the Centre for Pest Information
Technology and Transfer at the University of Queensland, has helped
us greatly with the Lucid software. Sharyn Wragg produced line drawings
for some of the character states not included in the first editions.
maps for each of the southern States of Australia were based largely
on what was published in WATTLE - Acacias of Australia, 2001.
We are grateful to Bruce Maslin, the coordinator of that work and
to the publishers, ABRS (Australian Biological Resources Study)
and CALM (Department of Conservation and Land Management) for permitting
us to reproduce these.
David Kleinig for use of some of his excellent photographs to fill
in gaps in our own collection. A major source of information for
biographical information was Norman Hall's publication, Botanists
of the Eucalypts. Don Blaxell, Leonie Stanberg and Chris Quinn
from the National Herbarium of New South Wales, Frances Quinn from
The University of New England, Nathan McQuoid from Greening Australia
in Western Australia and Alex George from Four Gables in
Perth, all provided additional biographical information. We thank
Peter Grayling for his assistance with field work and also Terena
Lally and Brendan Lepschi who provided many pieces of useful field
information. Alf Popplewell from Dandaragan and Steve Hopper, Director
of Kings Park, Perth assisted with localities for some difficult-to-find
species in Western Australia. Peter White, of CALM at Narrogin,
helped with general discussion of eucalypts of the southern wheatbelt
in particular. Stuart Boyd-Law, National Parks Officer from the
Glen Innes district in northern New South Wales, helped with locality
information for a recently described species.
grateful to Joy & Don Williams from Hi Vallee and to
Christine & Kingsley Smith from Mt. Misery who gave us access
to their properties in Western Australia to collect and photograph
a few of the uncommon species. We thank Bob and Maureen Nicolle
for their hospitality whilst we were on field trips to the Adelaide
could not have been completed without access to the various National
Parks, State Forests and Flora Reserves of southern Australia. We
would particularly like to thank Michael O'Donoghue from CALM in
Western Australia for his help in procuring permits for these areas
in Western Australia and Val Oliver and Suzie Dietrich from the
Australian National Herbarium for their efforts in obtaining permits
from the other States. We would like to thank the staff from the
Western Australian Herbarium, Perth, who processed some of our collections
from that state and also sent us loan material for further study.
like to thank all the staff from the Centre for Plant Biodiversity
Research for their support and encouragement over the entire length
of this project and acknowledge that EUCLID could not have been
presented at this level without the assistance from many dedicated
staff at CSIRO Plant Industry. From the Microscopy Unit we would
like to thank Celia Miller and Rosemary White, Eric Hynes and Anne
Hastings (from CSIRO Entomology) for their help with our digital
seed images and Scanning Electron Microscopy. Dac Nguyen, Rolf Kohnert
and Peter Cummings from the Computing Section set-up our computers
and kept them running smoothly. The staff from Glasshouse Services
and the Potting Shed provided soil and bench space to grow our seedlings.
The Visual Resources Unit, especially Tracy Mitchell and Carl Davies,
helped with promotional posters and the processing of our slide
film. The Administrative staff, especially Ian McCrae and Rita Holt,
helped organize many of our travel arrangements and other administrative
Muir, Meredith Lewis, Neil Simpson and Jennifer Griggs from CSIRO
Publishing helped with the final compilation.
we thank Bruce Maslin, Maurice McDonald, Nathan McQuoid, Dean Nicolle,
Ken Hill and Peter White for refereeing this work and for their
many useful suggestions.
