YET ANOTHER EUCALYPTOLOGICS BLOGOVERSARY!
The small digital seed we placed in the digital world three years ago, hidden in the blogosphere forest, has grown once again! After some neglection during late 2009 and later a bit more of careful nurturing during early 2010, EUCALYPTOLOGICS, the weblog providing information resources on sustainable Eucalyptus cultivation around the world... is in the way to become a nicely growing sapling!
As of May 2010, we have reached 155 countries. That is already more than the total of countries around the world growing Eucalyptus at a commercial scale!.

As usual with almost any online resource, the largest pool of readers keeps arriving to us from the USA . One year ago we witnessed the boom of EUCALYPTOLOGICS in South America, with a 470% of audience growth. This year of the Crisis EUCALYPTOLOGICS readership has instead grown a +193% (!!) in Eastern Europe, a +155% both in India & Africa and a +134% in South East Asia; while keeping growing steadily in the European Union, North America & Australia. Growth for audience in South America has only increased lightly, but Brazilian readers have become a consistent 5th power in just one year!
Geographic distribution of EUCALYPTOLOGICS readers by Year 3: USA, Spain, Australia, the UK, Brazil & Germany dominate. But some other 150 countries show significant interest in our online content, including France, Canada, Portugal, India, Argentina, Sweden, the Netherlands, Mexico and Chile.

Following the same trend of 2008, during 2009 and 2010, EUCALYPTOLOGICS has received especially interesting visitors too: +400 Academic Organizations (Universities, Colleges, High Schools, etc), +425 relevant Corporate Firms (Forestry & other Primary Resources, Industry & Services, Biotechnology, etc) and +225 Governmental Agencies (Local, Regional, National and International) have joined our growing wooden boat at some point last year.
You can have a look at an old Visitor List if interested, as example of who is looking for information on Eucalyptus cultivation around the world, besides the many thousands of interested individuals arriving to us from their homes, private networks and lately, mobile phones!
Many thanks to all our readers for making it possible! Without you this would not make sense!
