Biographies

Ian Brooker, a botanist specialising in eucalypts, worked with the CSIRO Division of Forest Research in Canberra and the Australian National Herbarium. Significantly, he published (2000), an entirely new classificatory system of the eucalypts. In this, he includes the subgenera Angophora and Corymbia, and five other subgenera, within a broadly-defined genus Eucalyptus.

Ian Brooker described 44 taxa of eucalypts and collaborated widely, jointly describing a further 171 together with Steve Hopper, later Director of the Royal Botanic Gardens, Kew. Brooker produced the interactive website EUCLID (Eucalypts of Australia). He also wrote the . In 1979 Alan Gray named the eucalyptus 'Brooker's Gum' as in his honour. The taxonomy list included here only shows a fraction of the eucalypts named by Brooker. In the publications list, a few of his many publications are cited.
