The article provides information on a species trial initiated by the Eucalypt Action Group in New Zealand beginning in 2004. The group launched the species trial in response to the increasing demand for information related to the choice of eucalypt species with good sawing and durability properties. The species mix was based around stringybark trees with some of the ash group included as indicator species. The results of the trial suggest that many species have struggled, with only the toughest pulling through in most cases.

    Gum trees, or eucalypts (Eucalyptus species), have been targeted for invasive alien plant clearing programs in many parts of South Africa. This has caused some dissatisfaction where the species concerned also have useful characteristics, and stakeholders contend that some of these useful species...

    Myrtaceae is a family with high taxonomic complexity, especially the very rich genera such as Myrcia. For this genus, there is not a complete and recent taxonomic revision, and it has some species complexes that are poorly delimited. One of these complexes includes M. laruotteana, M. selloi, M....
