32 colour illustrated pages. A small tear has been repaired in the dj. The Eucalypts of Australia were among the many features of the strange new land which were observed by early explorers. The genus was named, after samples had been collected at Adventure Bay, Tasmania, on Captain Cook's expedition of 1777, from the Greek words eu, meaning "well," and ka/yptos, "covered." This refers to the tight lids covering each flower until the stamens are ready to burst forth. The more common name of "gum trees" was bestowed by early colonists who noted the gum exuded by the timber of many species, and the scent of gum leaves has the power to arouse nostalgic memories in Australians who have been absent from their country for many years. There are about 500 species of eucalypts, of which all but seven originated in Australia.
