Eucalyptus ficifolia and Xanthorrhoea johnsonii

Authors and affiliation (s):



Eucalypts are the most iconic Australian medicinal plants and are possibly the most useful commercially for their medicinal properties (including antimicrobial, insect repellent, pesticidal, anticough and decongestant bioactivities). Eucalyptus is a diverse genus of trees in the family Myrtaceae. Of the more than 700 species that comprise this genus, most are endemic to Australia. A smaller number are also native to New Guinea, Indonesia and the Philippines. Pictured is the red flowering species Eucalyptus ficifolia (also known as Corymbia ficifolia).
