The iconic Eucalyptus and their status by Dr Frank Udovicic
June 25, 2017
Frank Udovicic is a graduate of the University of Melbourne School of Botany and has been interested in Eucalyptus species for a long time. His research has been in molecular genetics and systematics, but do not let that scare you off! He has been exploring the relationships between Eucalyptus species and Angophoras, the Eudesmia subgenus of Eucalyptus and Corymbias as well as Callistemon & Melaleuca.
Some people are concerned or even confused over the recent changes to the names of Eucalyptus species. Frank, who is heavily involved in this research, will provide an overview of the debate concerning the naming and classification of Australia’s most important tree species and their close allies.
Frank was unable to give this talk at one of our earlier workshops and we are delighted that he is able to do so now. This will be a fascinating afternoon!
