a sclerophyllous shrub or small tree that is multi-stemmed from a tuberous woody rootstock; a plant community dominated by this growth form
refers to a type of eucalyptus with multiple trunks growing from a large central tuberous root, also refers to a geographical area in which they are the dominant vegetation.
