EUCALYPT CLASSIFICATION

The eucalypts are a large group with a complex history. Relationships are complex and as yet incompletely understood. Any classification that reflects history or evolution is thus necessarily complex. The following is a classification first developed by Pryor and Johnson, later amended by Johnson and co-workers.
