Eucalypt leaves

There are about 850 species of eucalypt, comprising three genera: Eucalyptus, Corymbia, and Angophora.
Eucalypts are confined to Australia except for a couple of species occuring in the islands to our north, but they have been planted extensively around the world.
They are a familiar part of the landscape and an integral part of the Australian identity.
