Definition of the noun mallee

What does mallee mean as a name of something?

noun - plural: mallees

  1. any of several low-growing Australian eucalypts

Places

  1. The Mallee is an ill–defined district, sometimes incorrectly referred to as an economic region, of the Australian state of Victoria. The district is located entirely within the Loddon Mallee region; and covers the most northwesterly district in the state bounded by the South Australian and New South Wales borders, inclusive of the Murray River.
  2. Mallee, also known as Roe Botanical District, is a biogeographic region in southern Western Australia. Located between the Esperance Plains, Avon Wheatbelt and Coolgardie regions, it has a low, gently undulating topography, a semi-arid mediterranean climate, and extensive Eucalyptus mallee vegetation. About half of the region has been cleared for intensive agriculture. Recognised as a region under the Interim Biogeographic Regionalisation for Australia, it was first defined by John Stanley Beard in 1980.

Miscellanea

Mallee is the growth habit of certain eucalypt species that grow with multiple stems springing from an underground lignotuber, usually to a height of no more than ten metres. It is most common in plants of the genus Eucalyptus, many of which naturally grow in a mallee habit, and some of which grow as single-stemmed trees initially but recover in mallee form if burnt to the ground by bushfire. It also occurs in the closely related genera Corymbia and Angophora. The word mallee may also be used as a noun in reference to species or individual plants with a mallee habit.
