EUCLID Eucalypts of Australia, is an extension of the previous two editions: EUCLID, Eucalypts of South-Eastern Australia, which was published in 1997 and as a revised edition in 2000, and EUCLID, Eucalypts of Southern Australia, published in 2002.
We would like to thank those people acknowledged in all earlier editions of EUCLID as they have contributed to this version through their association with the first and second editions. Some have continued to assist us and numerous others have also made significant contributions. For this, the third edition of EUCLID, we wish to acknowledge the following people and institutions.
The first and second editions of EUCLID were produced with financial support from the Bushcare program of the Australian Government Department of Environment and Heritage, for which we are grateful.
We thank Jeremy Burdon, Chief, CSIRO Plant Industry, for his continued support of this seemingly endless project, and also Andrew Young, CSIRO Plant Industry program leader, for his support.
We are especially grateful to Helen Hewson, who meticulously proof-read many species fact sheets, as she did for earlier editions. Chris Blanchfield produced most of the distribution maps from the Australian National Herbarium database, and Kim Navin provided a neat interactive map checking program.
Kevin Thiele has made a significant contribution to EUCLID over many years. He produced most of the excellent and instructive line drawings used in the character notes and, along with Matt Taylor and Dan Campbell from the Centre for Pest Information Technology and Transfer at the University of Queensland, has helped us greatly with the Lucid software.
Helpful discussion of the taxonomy of some northern species of the
eucalypts was provided by Ian Cowie and Dale Dixon, both of the Northern
Territory Herbarium in Darwin, Tony Bean of the Queensland Herbarium
(Mt Coot-tha) and Russell Cummings of Environmental Protection Agency,
Queensland in Townsville. John Clarkson of Environmental Protection
Agency, Queensland, in Mareeba, was free with helpful advice on species
identification and distribution in the Cape York region, and provided
valuable guidance in these matters during a field trip to northern Cape
York Peninsula. Stephen van Leeuwen of Pilbara Regional Herbarium, Department
of Conservation and Land Management, Karratha, Western Australia, provided
advice during a brief visit there. Dean Nicolle, Currency Creek Arboretum,
South Australia , provided help with changes in eucalypt taxonomy in
southern Australia since 2002, and especially with access to his (then)
unpublished manuscripts of Eucalyptus series Subulatae,
and also with his views on some northern eucalypts. Peter White
of Department of Conservation and Land Management, Narrogin, Western
Australia, provided useful insight on recently described southern species,
and several photographs. Dave Albrecht of the Northern Territory Herbarium
in Alice Springs provided useful advice on species distributions in
Research undertaken for such a project cannot be completed without access to the various National Parks, State Forests and Flora Reserves of northern Australia. The heads of the following organizations and the permit-issuing officers are thanked for providing permits to collect plants: Department of Conservation and Land Management in Western Australia, Department of Infrastructure, Planning and Environment in the Northern Territory, and the Environmental Protection Agency in Queensland.
A major source of biographical information was Norman Hall's publication, Botanists of the Eucalypts . Don Blaxell, Leonie Stanberg and Chris Quinn from the National Herbarium of New South Wales, Frances Quinn from The University of New England, Nathan McQuoid from Greening Australia in Western Australia, Bruce Maslin from the Western Australian Herbarium, and Alex George from Four Gables in Perth, all provided additional biographical information.
Carl Davies, Sandie McIntosh, Amy Wilson, Gill Cosgrove and Lindsay Jaggers, staff of the Visual Resources Unit, and staff of the Communications Unit, CSIRO Plant Industry, are thanked for helpful advice, access to their facilities, and for their support of the project.
