The difference between these two systems is that nursery stock plants in the mini-cuttings system are raised from small and often serially-propagated rooted cuttings, whereas nursery stock plants in the micro-cuttings system are raised initially in tissue culture [16–26]. The following are the most obvious features which separate them but they are only general and there may be exceptions: The term "gum tree" is derived from the habit of some eucalypt species to exude a sticky, gum-like substance from the trunk.

The flowers of the Eucalyptus species are protected by an operculum, hence the generic name, which comes from the Greek words ‘eu’ (well) and ‘calyptos’ (covered). The study evaluates both non-flowering and flowering Marri, and ‘good’ and ‘bad’ Marri flowering years. As the flower opens the cap is shed. Yellow box, Red ironbark).

The long-term survival of these species can be at risk if fires occur too frequently (i.e. Until 1990, corymbias were included in the genus Eucalyptus and there is still considerable disagreement among botanists as to whether separating them is valid. Those species that regenerate vegetatively from the trunk or lignotubers are more readily able to cope with more frequent fire. In most cases seed matures within 12 months of flowering but is retained on the tree until stimulated to be shed by the heat from a fire or by the death of the plant. 2009). Some common species planted in suburban areas are the Red-flowering Gum, Lemon-scented Gum and the Spotted Gum.

The seeds are generally larger and more deeply coloured than the chaff. There are about 12 species which occur naturally outside of Australia but around 700 are Australian endemics. Eucalyptus pulverulenta Although rarely encountered, there are four other genera within the 'eucalypt group' - Stockwellia and Allosyncarpia (each comprising a single species and confined to Queensland rainforests), Eucalyptopsis (two species) and Arillastrum (1 species) neither of which occur in Australia. Corymbia is, in fact, a relatively new genus (1995) which contains 113 species, 80 of which were formerly within Eucalyptus.

An excellent account of the history, uses and environmental issues of Californian eucalypts can be found in The Eucalyptus of California: Seeds of Good or Seeds of Evil? variegata (CCV) belongs to the Section Politaria, and recent studies have shown that it is There are three mechanisms of recovery: Some species, notably those like Mountain ash (E.regnans) from wetter forests, rely solely on seed to regenerate. These genera are both in the same family (i.e. These leaves are usually superseded by the adult leaves early in the tree's development but, in a few cases, they may persist into the adult stage of growth. Methods and Materials Study System Corymbia citriodora subsp. The Eucalyptus of California: Seeds of Good or Seeds of Evil? The shape and size of these pods are important aids in identifying species.
