Abstract

The series Trees of Western Australia, which appeared in The Journal of Agriculture of Western Australia, was commenced in 1952 by Charles Austin Gardner, Government Botanist and Curator of the Western Australian Herbarium from 1929 to1960. Until his death in 1970 Gardner published in the series 29 articles, dealing with 117 species of Eucalyptus, the last article appearing in 1966.

The articles are of historical and scientific interest. They contain valuable original information on the phytogeography and taxonomy of over half of the Western Australian species of Eucalyptus, based largely on Gardner's personal observations made in the course of his extensive travels in Western Australia. Each species is illustrated by his own diagnostic line drawings.
