Xcacia is also used to tan hides and the gum it produces eaten. Spread over such a large area inhabited by diverse cultures, the V. The range of seed-eating coleoptera that are parasites of the Acacia raises questions that need answering concerning the trophic and ecological specialization of acadia, identification of defence mechanisms used by Acacia, and the characterisation of co-evolution of the insects and the host plant.

Petal or tepal color: It also became apparent that mycorrhizal infection of the provenances of Acacia raddiana north of south were similar. It is prevalent in the suitable places, is prominent in the landscape and holds a dominant position in its ecosystem.

It is true that the genetic study raddinaa this species is hampered by its polyploidy, which underlines the need for improvement of genetic models that are suitable for the interpretation of tetrapoloid markers. There are numerous benefits to be had from such plant formations, in particular for the conservation of biodiversity in its widest sense: Australian botanists proposed that this would be more disruptive than setting a different type species A.

There follows a brief summary of some of the future research topics suggested by the different contributions. As far as micro-organisms are concerned, confirmation is needed of the different groups of strains of Rhizobium nodulating Acacia raddiana using phylogenetic techniques to determine their taxonomic position and aczcia suggest possible final nomenclature.


Archived from the original on 10 November The causes are to be found on the one hand in unfavourable climatic changes, and on the other, in increasing human activity. Views View Edit History. Our results show that there is no apparent link between the taxonomic position and the geographic origin of the strains of rhizobia that incidentally display marked homogeneity in their main symbiotic characteristics.
