This project sought to identify sources of new bioactive products that might provide another income stream from plantings of low-rainfall eucalypts. Plantations of deep-rooted native vegetation in low-rainfall areas of Australia yield many environmental benefits including a reduction in the height of the water table and consequently in ground salinity. These plantings also fix CO2 and potentially increase biodiversity. Tree planting is encouraged if there is clear financial return in the form of saw logs, wood for the production of charcoal or biological products such as essential oils. 2004, 42pgs, Pub No. 04/154; $16
