Dear colleagues of Acacia, I am in great need for the following publication (if available in digital format):
Ross, J. H. (1979)
A conspectus of the African Acacia species
Memoirs of the Botanical Survey of South Africa; 44.

Can any one help? You can contact me at my email:

Wanted to update a list of Acacia trees and shrubs growing in California.(More specifically Southern California)

I am going to be in Israel (mostly Galilee regions) over the course of the next four or so weeks, and wanted to know which species are native to this region.

Not from Israel but searching shows: A. Tortilis, A. Raddiana, A. Albida, A. Arabica, A. Nilotica, A. Seyal, and there's potential for A. Magnium, A. Salicina, A. Saligna, A. Auriculiformis, A. Mearnsii, and a few others which may be cultivated.
