Biographies

Initially mapping remote forest areas with the Forests Commission of Victoria, Leon Pederick moved to its Research Branch in 1958 and began a major tree breeding program with Pinus radiata until his retirement in 1993. This program yielded significant gains in growth rate and timber qualitiy. He also established large field trials with eucalypts to study natural variation. In one major study, seeds collected from throughout the natural distribution of a species then known as Eucalyptus nitens was planted at two locations in 1972. Differences in foliage characters and growth rate were observed between collections from central and eastern Victorian seed sources. Subsequently, the eastern populations were described by others as a separate species, , and the central populations retained the name . Other genetic studies involved and .
