This Booklet describes the species named in an Arboriculture Research Note on eucalypts in Britain by Evans (1980) plus a few others, and the principal species grown in Ireland referred to by Mooney (1960). The most successful species are from areas of temperate climate in Australia and are relatively frost tolerant. The characters used are those that are usually available on specimens in the field. A synopsis of the life cycle and morphological features of a eucalypt plant is provided to assist readers who are unfamiliar with the genus Eucalyptus.
