Summary

Edmundo Navarro de Andrade studied at the National School of Agriculture of Coimbra (Portugal), where he graduated in 1903 as Agricultural Engineer. On returning to Brazil from his studies, he brought with him seeds of Eucalyptus globulus for planting. He joined the research team of the Jundiai Forest Garden in Brazil and had planted 32,000 eucalypts by 1906. In 1913 he visited Joseph Maiden in Sydney, bringing seeds of an additional 144 species back to Brazil. In 1916, work commenced on the Museu do Eucalipto at Rio Claro, located in the Navarro de Andrade State Forest and Park in Sao Paulo. The aim for this museum was to store and display artefacts and wood samples and become a knowledge centre on eucalypts.
