Abstract

This paper provides identification keys that are based entirely on morphological features to commonly and widely cultivated eucalypts, encompassing Eucalyptus L'Hér., Angophora Cav., and Corymbia K. D. Hill & L. A. S. Johnson in the Myrtaceae Juss. The key includes 173 taxa: one species of Angophora, nine species of Corymbia, and 163 species of Eucalyptus. Evidence for cultivation was determined by accounts in the literature, herbaria, personal communications, and observations of living trees in cultivation in Europe, North America, Africa, and Australia. The locations, prevalence of cultivation, and naturalization of several eucalypt species are discussed.
