  1. Beskrivelse

    "The tallest and most stately trees I ever saw in any nobleman's ground in England cannot excel in beauty those which nature presented to our" "view." First fleet surgeon Arthur Bowes"Eucalypts are a familiar part of Australia's natural landscape and an integral part of the Australian identity. They have been farmed and used to build houses, furniture, roads, and bridges since the beginning of white settlement. Australians and international visitors alike have been inspired by them, painted them, made films about them, written books about them, and of course Aboriginal Australians have long made musical instruments from them. Though a small number are found as native plants in several other countries, Eucalypts are a very Australian tree. This book celebrates their diversity, their beauty and the role they play in the history, culture, and economy of Australian nation. It looks at their evolution, biology, horticulture, and ecology, together with their classification and the botanists involved. Through historic and contemporary images, it examines the many ways in which they have served Aboriginal, colonial, and contemporary Australians in both practical and aesthetic ways. Eucalypts have quite literally been the building blocks ofthe nation and this beautiful book tells their complete story for the first time."
