Hello, Lars:
I believe you thought you were posting a private email to 'Steve', however, your message
wound up on many newsgroups, which is probably for the best, because I am sure you will
get many responses in your quest for information on the eucalyptus.

Here's my suggestion:
There is a new webpage 'The Ethnobotany Cafe' that can help you in two ways. 1) they have
a message board where you can post the question that you posted here. 2) they have links

Hope this helps.
