Overview of the generic status of Acacia (Leguminosae: Mimosoideae)
The new data clearly show that the genus Acacia, as presently defined, is not monophyletic and it is recommended that these each be recognised as a distinct genus. Expand
(1584) Proposal to conserve the name Acacia (Leguminosae: Mimosoideae) with a conserved type
The present type of Acacia is generally considered to be A. scorpioides (L.) Delile (/ Mimosa nilotica L.) as type, but acceptance of Pedley's classification would necessitate a very large number of changes to current nomenclature. Expand
Towards an understanding of variation in the Mulga complex ( Acacia aneura and relatives)
Accumulating evidence indicates that the Mulga complex is reproducing through facultative apomixis, and the classification of the group adequately reflect the biological reality that exists in nature, if indeed this is achievable. Expand
Genetic differentiation among morphological variants of Acacia saligna (Mimosaceae)
The analysis identified considerable genetic variation within A. saligna that was genetically structured into three groups that suggest they may represent different taxa and a taxonomic revision of the species may be required. Expand
Taxonomic revision of the salwoods: Acacia aulacocarpa Cunn. ex Benth. and its allies (Leguminosae: Mimosoideae: section Juliflorae).
A taxonomic revision of Acacia aulacocarpa Cunn. exBenth. and its seven close relatives is presented. These species comprise theA. aulacocarpa group in the AcaciaMill. section Juliflorae and occurExpand
Patterns of Distribution of Acacia in Australia
The geographic patterns of species-richness are strongly influenced by sections Phyllodineae, Juliflorae and Plurinerves, which predominate in the north of the continent, semiarid areas of the south-west, many rocky tablelands of the Arid Zone and along the Great Dividing Range. Expand
Nomenclatural and classification history of Acacia (Leguminosae: Mimosoideae), and the implications of generic subdivision
Information is provided on how to identify and manage threatened species at risk of decline in Australia through a range of natural and man-made threats. Expand
Phytogeography of Acacia in Western Australia
An analysis of the distribution of selected closely related species groups occurring in a range of habitats throughout Western Australia indicates that geographical isolation has played an important role in speciation in the genus. Expand
Phytogeography of Acacia in Australia in Relation to Climate and Species-Richness
This paper reports on the kinds of geographic patterns encountered in the distribution of Australian species of Acacia and on some climatic correlates of these patterns, and indicates that precipitation was more important than temperature in distinguishing between areas. Expand
