Eucalyptus: A Natural & Commercial History of the Gum Tree
Robin W. Doughty (au). Tells the how the eucalyptus -- or “gum tree” -- spread from its native Australia to habitats around the world. First regarded as an exotic novelty & a popular ornamental in European gardens, the eucalyptus became the favored tree of the global pulpwood ind’y. Discusses reasons for the tree’s popularity throughout history, ranging from the aesthetic, to its purported malaria-countering character in swamps, to its ability to adapt & mature quickly as a source of timber & firewood. Raises important issues surrounding the eucalyptus today, such as the accelerated establishment of eucalyptus plantations in Latin America & Asia, their impact upon the environment & the social consequences of encouraging expansion on both private & community lands. B&W photos.
