Malcolm has been a volunteer with the Department of the Environment and Conservation (D.E.C) for many years, primarily during spare time identifying eucalypt specimens and granting advice for the Western Australian Herbarium. In 2008 Malcolm was granted Research Associate status by the Science Division of D.E.C for significant research and valuable work in the taxonomy of eucalypts.
This book describes in detail all of the naturally occurring eucalypts (147 species and subspecies) in the large coastal and sub coastal regions from south of Dongara on the west coast to east of Ravensthorpe on the far south coast of Western Australia.
The book incorporates Perth, the Swan coastal plain, the Darling, Stirling, Porongurup and Ravensthorpe Ranges, the Lesueur and Fitzgerald River National Parks (32 National Parks in total) and the mighty karri, jarrah, marri and tingle forest areas from Albany, Walpole, Pemberton to Margaret River.
This book covers the south-west area adjacent to Malcolm’s comprehensive book on the EUCALYPTS of WESTERN AUSTRALIA’s WHEATBELT.
24 species are described for the first time in a full book mode.
A selection of eucalypts, recommended by Malcom, considered ideal for planting as ornamentals across the wheatbelt.
