The rust Puccinia psidii infects many species in the family Myrtaceae. Native to South America, the pathogen has recently entered Australia which has a rich Myrtaceous flora, including trees of the ecologically and economically important genus Eucalyptus. We studied the genetic basis of variation in rust resistance in Eucalyptus globulus, the main(More)
Understanding the genetic-based variability in plant phytochemical compounds provides insight into the evolutionary and ecological processes affecting those traits. In some cases, it is an advantage to quantify the holistic phytochemical profile of a sample rather than focus on individual compounds of known interest. Near-infrared (NIR) reflectance(More)
