New guide to Melaleuca species

The Australian Centre for International Agricultural Research (ACIAR) is pleased to announce the release of a comprehensive guide to Melaleucas.

MELALEUCAS: THEIR BOTANY, ESSENTIAL OILS AND USES<http://aciar.gov.au/publication/mn156> is a visually stunning A4 book with colour photos of nearly 300 species of the genus. Detailed analyses of each species' oil profile are provided in a companion website<http://aciar.gov.au/article/melaleuca-oil-profiles>.

Species of Melaleuca are used for producing essential oils, land rehabilitation, pole production, and horticulture in Australia and the Asia-Pacific. To date, there has been a lack of published comprehensive information about the genus.



The book covers the botanical characteristics, distribution maps, commercial and ornamental uses of Melaleuca, along with information on propagation, production, pests and diseases, and conservation.



The guide was written by three Australian scientists with extensive experience with Melaleuca. It builds on ACIAR's research program on Melaleuca essential oils industries in Australia, Indonesia and Papua New Guinea.



The essential oils program of the Rural Industries Research and Development Corporation (RIRDC) funded a major field collection in Western Australia to fill gaps in species coverage for the guide.



MELALEUCAS: THEIR BOTANY, ESSENTIAL OILS AND USES <http://aciar.gov.au/publication/mn156> is available as a free download or in hard copy ($85, incl GST) from ACIAR's website www.aciar.gov.au<http://www.aciar.gov.au/>
