Eucalypts of the Mount Alexander Region by Bernard Slattery, Ern Perkins and Bronwyn Silver is a great new resource. This 90 page guide aims to help the beginner train the eye to see the differences between eucalypts. It shows the commonest species of the Mount Alexander Region but describes species common to the whole Box-Ironbark region so is useful in a wider area. Sections on major species include drawings of buds, fruit, juvenile leaves and adult leaves by Leon Costermans.
The book is a community project of the Friends of the Box-Ironbark Forests. Publication has been made possible by a generous grant from the Worrowing Fund through the Norman Wettenhall Foundation. The Castlemaine Field Naturalists’ Club and Connecting Country have also provided financial support. link
