Eucalyptus: The Genus Eucalyptus
John J W Coppen
Eucalyptus, a genus of over 800 species, is a multiproduct crop par excellence. Not
only is it grown for timber, pulp and fuelwood, but, as the Aborigines discovered thousands
of years ago, it has numerous medicinal and aromatic properties. Since the first commercial
distillation of eucalyptus oil 150 years ago, a vast array of eucalyptus-based products has
entered the marketplace, mainly for pharmaceutical, fragrance and flavor use.
