Presentation of Species Descriptions

The descriptions are generally arranged in a two-page format with the text and the map of the species distribution on the left and a composite plate of botanical and tree photographs on the right. The botanical names of species follow current nomenclature. The nomenclature for the eucalypts mainly follows Brooker et al. (2002). The common names for species mostly follow the 'Nomenclature of Australian Timbers' (Australian Standard 1970). The main common name is given prominence with alternative...

The trunk often branches at about half tree height into a well-developed, dense crown that has a grey-green to silvery appearance. Maximum dbh development is in the range 30-50 cm. Clumps formed from root suckering are often evident in occurrences of this species. There are two subspecies, the typical and subsp. argentifolia.

A typical tree has a long straight bole with little taper and is free of branches for up to two-thirds of the tree height. The crown is rather open, consisting of dark green foliage tending to be clumped towards the ends of branches. Many trees have long internodes between the whorls of branches, giving a characteristic silhouette of a long spindly leader and...
