Eucalyptus Study Group FormSignup form for the Eucalyptus Study Group that sends a notification to the Study Group leader.
Regular newsletters are published several times per year to record activities and experiences of Group members in cultivating eucalypts, keeping up to date on scientific knowledge of the genus and reporting on field trips to various parts of Australia.
Newsletters published over recent years are available for download.
The Study Group produces a number of informative newsletters each year documenting reports from members into cultivation issues in various climatic zones, propagation methods, natural occurrences of different species and information on Group meetings and excursions.
Newsletters published by the Study Group since its inception are provided here as an archive. Not all early issues are currently available but they will be added here if they become available. (Note: These are in pdf format and will require a PDF Reader to view them. Free readers include Foxit Reader and Adobe Acrobat Reader). More recent newsletters will be uploaded about a year in arrears, so that current Study Group members have privileged access to current content
You can search the contents of the newsletters using the Search box above. Note that issues prior to No.33 have been scanned from paper copies before being processed via optical character recognition (OCR). As the success of OCR is highly dependent on the quality of the scans, searching may not be fully successful for earlier issues.
