This thesis addresses knowledge gaps in the productivity, breeding and economics of mallee eucalypts which have potential as a biofuel feedstock or for carbon sequestration. We assessed mallee productivity at 19 sites which ranged from 2.2 to 32.8 dry Mg/ha/year. Mallee planting configurations had significant effect on yield. Future breeding should include assessments of reproductive phenologies and selections for biomass should be made at coppice age. Mallee can be profitable under current Australian carbon prices.
