Biographical entry Nicolle, Dean (1974 - )

Adelaide, South Australia, Australia
Botanist and Taxonomist


Dean Nicolle is a botanist specialising in eucalypt systematics, geographical variation, ecology and biochemistry. He is director and head of research at Currency Creek Arboretum (CCA), a world-renowned eucalypt research arboretum. Most of the eucalypts in the plantation were grown from seed collected by Nicolle in the wild. Dean Nicolle named over 150 Eucalyptus species and subspecies, some in collaboration with Brooker, M.E. French and L.A.S. Johnson.
