Abstract Twelve Caribbean species of Vachellia (formerly Acacia subgenus Acacia) are formally monographed with taxonomic, habitat, geographic distribution descriptions, and lists of representative specimens examined. The species treated here are all part of the informal Vachellia acuifera group, which is characterized by generally enlarged stipular spines borne in clusters on the stems, 1–3 pairs of pinnae per leaf, and 20–50 stamens. Ordination analyses of vegetative characters show that these… Expand
A New Species of Vachellia (Fabaceae, Mimosoideae) from the Dominican Republic
TLDR
This previously undescribed species is most similar to, but distinct from, V. barahonensis (Urb. & Ekman) Seigler & Ebinger, also known from Azua Province. Expand
Neotropical mutualism between Acacia and Pseudomyrmex: phylogeny and divergence times.
TLDR
The phylogenies of both New World Acacia and of their associated species of ants and the geographic origin of this mutualism are analyzed, implying that their relationship originated in Mesoamerica between the late Miocene to the middle Pliocene, with eventual diversification of both groups in Mexico.

New combinations in Senegalia and Vachellia (Leguminosae:Mimosoideae) for Southeast Asia and China
TLDR
Fragmentation of the former broadly circumscribed genus Acacia necessitates combinations in Senegalia and Vachellia for the following 40 taxa that are recorded for the region encompassed by Southeast Asia and China. Expand
Endemic Seed Plants in the Bahamian Archipelago
TLDR
It is anticipated that understanding the conservation status of endemic species and their distributions will help to develop legislation to preserve this Bahamian natural heritage. Expand
New combinations in Vachellia and Senegalia (Leguminosae: Mimosoideae) for south and west Asia
TLDR
Fragmentation of the former broadly circumscribed genus Acacia necessitates new names in Vachellia and Senegalia for the following 21 taxa that are recorded for the south and west Asian regions. Expand
A NEW SPECIES OF VACHELLIA (FABACEAE: MIMOSOIDEAE) FROM HAITI
TLDR
Vachellia koltermanii, a species from Département Ouest, Haiti, is described, illustrated, and compared to related species from Haiti and the Dominican Republic. Expand
Evolution of host utilization patterns in the seed beetle genus Mimosestes Bridwell (Coleoptera: Chrysomelidae: Bruchinae).
TLDR
Reconstruction of the evolutionary history of diet breadth expansion and intergeneric host shifts in the seed beetle genus Mimosestes revealed that host utilization patterns were shaped by repeated colonizations to novel or pre-adapted host plants. Expand
A review on General Description of Vachellia farnesiana (L.) Wight &Arn
TLDR
This review summarizes the extensive published literature on Vachellia farnesiana known as an invasive species by first providing an overview of its description, general biology and utility and critically reviewing ecological literature examining the biotic and abiotic interactions that drive the population and community dynamics.

A taxonomic revision of Acaciella (Leguminosae, Mimosoideae)
TLDR
The genus Acaciella Britton & Rose is reinstated, neotropical with the highest species diversity along the Pacific coast of Mexico, characterised by three features exceptional in Acacia Miller: unarmed plants, lack extrafloral nectaries and pollen polyads 8-celled. Expand
Overview of the generic status of Acacia (Leguminosae: Mimosoideae)
TLDR
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
TLDR
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
Taxonomic Revision of South American Species of the Genus Acacia Subgenus Acacia (Fabaceae: Mimosoideae)
TLDR
Most of the species found in the South American flora were found to be relatively homogeneous, as indicated by the tight clusters formed in the PCA plots, and the data suggest little gene flow between species. Expand

TLDR
This study highlights the inevitability of recognising segregate genera from Acacia s.l., and the necessary abandonment of Bentham’s longstanding tribal classification. Expand
Vachellia acuifera (Fabaceae: Mimosoideae) new to Cuba
TLDR
Vachellia acuifera, hitherto considered endemic to the Bahamas, has been found as a native element in the natural vegetation of Caletones, a coastal locality of Holguín province, northeastern Cuba, an additional indication for the strong phytogeographic affinities between the northern coast of Cuba and the Bahamas.
