Pollination characteristics in the mimosoid legume Acacia terminalis (Leguminosae)


, : Pollination characteristics in the mimosoid legume Acacia terminalis (Leguminosae). Plant Systematics and Evolution 157: 49-62

Two isolated populations (valley and montane) of the self-incompatible tree, Acacia terminalis, showed intraspecific variation. The valley population had brighter yellow flowers, more heads per raceme and anthers per flower, and longer styles, but fewer flowers per head than the montane population. The extrafloral nectaries of the montane population were smaller but nectar volumes were similar.
