Abstract Information about Leptospermum scoparium (Myrtaceae), the most widespread and important New Zealand indigenous shrub species, is reviewed. L. scoparium is a variable species, requiring more study of the genetically based differences between New Zealand populations and the affinity of these populations to Australian populations and other closely allied Australian species. Improved understanding of the species’ variation will assist both its conservation roles and economic uses, and the… 
Response of Leptospermum scoparium, Kunzea robusta and Pinus radiata to contrasting biowastes.
TLDR
This work aimed to determine the effect of these biowastes on nitrate leaching and the growth and chemical composition of these plant species compared to Pinus radiata (pine), a common forestry species.
The threat of myrtle rust to Māori taonga plant species in New Zealand.
TLDR
Preparedness and response plans for a myrtle rust incursion in New Zealand should consider the values that Māori derive from these plants, who have and continue to use the properties of some species in many ways.
Checklist of fungi on teatree (Kunzea and Leptospermum species) in New Zealand
TLDR
An annotated list is provided of 450 taxa of fungi that have been recorded in New Zealand in close association with teatree, that is, species of Kunzea and Leptospermum, especially native species of ectomycorrhizal fungi.
Developing polyploid genotypes of Leptospermum scoparium
TLDR
Colchicine was effective at producing tetraploid seedlings with 6 mg/ml, the highest concentration tested, yielding the largest number of tetraPloid plants, and this method is now being used to generate Tetraploids from a range of L. scoparium material.
Seasonal and environmental variation in volatile emissions of the New Zealand native plant Leptospermum scoparium in weed-invaded and non-invaded sites
TLDR
A strong seasonal effect on volatile emissions is revealed, but also significant differences between sites associated with biotic and abiotic changes partly driven by invasive plants.
The phylogenomics of diversification on an island: applying anchored hybrid enrichment to New Zealand Leptospermum scoparium (Myrtaceae)
TLDR
The analyses suggest that a combination of low and incompatible data signal limits the resolution of relationships among New Zealand populations of L. scoparium, and is consistent with genetic diversity being geographically structured.
Mānuka (Leptospermum scoparium) roots forage biosolids in low fertility soil
TLDR
Pot and rhizobox experiments revealed that the roots of L. scoparium morphologically foraged patches of biosolids in soil, in contrast to previous reports that foraging is uncommon in plants adapted to low fertility soils.
Occurence of arbuscular mycorrhiza and extomycorrhiza on Leptospermum scoparium from the Rakaia catchment, Canterbury.
TLDR
This study examined AM and EM colonisation on L. scoparium growing within AM grassland ecosystems or adjoining Nothofagus forest in the Rakaia catchment, Canterbury and suggests the montane environment of the study sites would favour EM rather than AM colonisation.
Does heating stimulate germination in Leptospermum scoparium (mānuka; Myrtaceae)?
TLDR
Evaluating links between germination, serotiny and shoot-level flammability in Leptospermum scoparium from New Zealand indicates that the taxa from other fire-prone ecosystems may show coordinated trait responses to fire, but the lack of association between physical measures of flammable and germination rates indicate that this is not the case in L. scop aquarium.
Inner plant space - bacterial endophytes of Leptospermum scoparium (mānuka)
TLDR
It is demonstrated that AMF can improve the growth of mānuka and affect plant secondary metabolites in leaves, both of these effects would be valuable in commercial essential oil production from plantationgrown mânuka.

Aspects of the ecology of the indigenous shrub Leptospermum scoparium (Myrtaceae) in New Zealand
Abstract Geographic variation in leaf size and shape of the widespread and environmentally-tolerant indigenous shrub Leptospermum scoparium (Myrtaceae) was determined from 182 herbarium specimens
Responses of Leptospermum scoparium and L. ericoides (Myrtaceae) to waterlogging
TLDR
Field observations of the contrasting tolerances and adaptations to permanently waterlogged habitats of the two widespread indigenous species of Leptospermum (Myrtaceae) were tested experimentally and the appearance of a specialised ventilating tissue, aerenchyma, which arose by an increase in the number and radial number of cells in the rhytidome.
Ecology of Leptospermum in Otago
TLDR
Both Leptospermum scoparium and L. ericoides have an upper altitudinal limit below that of Nothofagus, and as they approach this limit they become restricted to sunny faces.
A revision of the genus Leptospermum (Myrtaceae)
TLDR
The evidence suggests that Leptospermum originated before the onset of Miocene aridity, and was dispersed rela­ tively recently from eastern Australia to New Zealand, New Guinea, the Kimberley region of Western Australia and South East Asia.
Variation of inherent seed capsule splitting in populations of Leptospermum scoparium (Myrtaceae) in New Zealand
TLDR
It is concluded that the variation observed is consistent with the opinion that the New Zealand flora generally lacks fire adaptation but, since human settlement, rapid selection of fire‐adapted genotypes of L. scoparium has occurred in populations that are seral in secondary succession to forest.
Redefinitions and nomenclatural changes within the Leptospermum suballiance of Myrtaceae
TLDR
A new genus, Neofabricia, from tropical Queensland is described and two new combinations made, N. myrtifolia and Kunzea ericoides, for a species from southeastern Australia and New Zealand; and two genera from Western Australia are reinstated.
Leaf endophytes of manuka (Leptospermum scoparium)
TLDR
The difference in leaf endophyte communities between planted and natural stands of manuka may be an indication of wider differences in the microbial communities of the respective stands, and could prove significant for site restoration projects.
A field survey of mycorrhizas in New Zealand ferns
TLDR
With few exceptions, roots of New Zealand ferns (Filicales) are constantly mycorrhizal in natural or modified communities, even in soils exceeding 200 µg/ml Truog phosphorus, and several spore types may occur in a single root system.
Essential oils from New Zealand manuka and kanuka: Chemotaxonomy of Leptospermum
TLDR
Standardized steam distillation and GC analytical methods for oils from manuka, Leptospermum scoparium, and Kunzea sinclairii revealed compositional patterns that indicate the need for further taxonomic study of plants currently included in L. scop aquarium in Australia and New Zealand.
