It is important to note that one of the old synonyms, Acacia cyanophylla is still widely but incorrectly used in parts of the introduced range to this day, although Le Houérou (2002) defends his use of the older name “known for decades” only “for reasons of convenience”. The tree nodulates with certain strains of, The seed is spread along rivers and watercourses (, Seeds can be spread by birds, such as doves and starlings in South Africa (, It is reported that seed can be spread in sand transported for road and dam construction (. The results indicate that indigenous ants have played a crucial role in maintaining and accumulating Acacia seed banks and thus may have facilitated the development of dense Acacia stands.
