Review of pollen–pistil interactions and their relevance to the reproductive biology of Acacia

Australian Systematic Botany 16(1) 119 - 130
Published: 25 March 2003


Some of the published work on the reproductive biology of acacias is reviewed. The material selected refers to a few members of each of the three subgenera: Acacia, Aculieferum and Phyllodineae. Particular reference is made to anatomy, floral development and pollen–stigma interactions. Factors relevant to reproduction, including pollinators, self-incompatibility and fruit set are discussed.
