Info Gallery provides information on a range of subjects relating to Acacia.
Acacia is the largest group of woody plants in Australia, with around 1 000 species currently recognized (these are generally known by the common name of Wattle). Many of these species are grown, not only within Australia but also world wide, for economic, environmental and social reasons.
Within Australia Wattles dominate large areas of the continent and are especially common and conspicuous in arid, semi-arid and dry sub-tropical areas. Acacia species exhibit an amazing range of variation in morphological, ecological, geographic, biological, biochemical, genetic and other attributes. Understanding these species with respect to their names, variation and relationships is the essential starting point for effectively using this vast genetic resource.
