Fl. Madagasc.: Vol. 152 (1953)View in Botanicus
APG website treatment: Myrtaceae
Notes: Numerous spp of "Eucalyps" (the genera Eucalyptus and Corymbia) are in cultivation for timber and some are at least semi-naturalized in Madagascar. Numerous species in other various genera are in cultivation for edible fruits or as ornamentals, including the European Myrtle, Myrtus communis L., which is recorded as cultivated in Antananarivo, and species of the widely cultivated ornamental "Bottle brushes" (the genera Callistemon and Melaleuca) are occasionally naturalised.

Subordinate Taxon Data:

The data in this table are derived from the corresponding Genus and Species pages. The table provides a summary of the treatment presented in the published parts of the Flore de Madagascar et des Comores, together with a summary of the data presented here in the Madagascar Catalogue, which includes information on the number of species currently accepted, and an estimate of the number of undescribed species for the genera for which a recent taxonomic evaluation has been conducted. The number of accepted species is added to the estimate of undescribed species to provide an estimated total. Place cursor over headers marked [+] for further explanation of the column contents.
