Fast identification guide "acacia spp."
« on: May 07, 2016, 03:31:43 pm »

Hello friends

In this post I will create a visual tutorial to help identification various acacias, mainly the ones that occur in my country. Im sure they grow in more places so this can be useful to anyone that wants to get a positive id of  wild acacias.

I have the help of a scientific group that study and identifies invasive plants in my country.  Many thanks to Them!

Happy reading  ;)

I did take some, we are a group of people that pass the weekend searching for invasive species,  identifying them and enter the exact location, by GPS on a map.  Its called citizen-scientist activity.

Although there are dozens of invasive species here worthy of study and identification, my main focus are the acacias   ;)

Perhaps this type of activity exists in other countries, if so we could create a global acacia database.

who said that science is boring?  :P
