    Research output: Contribution to journalArticle


    Eucalyptus alba sensu lato is currently distributed through northern Australia and Papua New Guinea, as well as the Lesser Sunda islands of Indonesia and Timor-Leste. In the Lesser Sundas the distribution of E. alba is poorly-known, but it has been recorded from the central islands of Flores, Solor, Adonara, Lembata, Pantar, Alor, Atauro, Wetar and Timor. Here, I document the first E. alba records for two remote volcanic Lesser Sunda islands - Damar and Romang. I also note new E. alba records from the less isolated Lesser Sunda islands of Lirang, Leti and Moa. Further study of these populations is needed to clarify the relationships, taxonomic status and dispersal among members of the E. alba species complex.
