  • Substantial phenotypic variation in Acacia koa has been reported in the Hawaiian Islands. We grew 72 A. koa families from the islands of O`ahu, Kaua`i, and Hawai`i in two common gardens to determine whether phenotypic differences in phyllode morphology, extrafloral nectary morphology, and other characters have a genetic basis. Significant differences among islands and families were observed for phyllode width, curvature, and pubescence, as well as extrafloral nectary size and pigmentation… CONTINUE READING
