Description

Please note that the content of this book primarily consists of articles available from Wikipedia or other free sources online. Acacia binervia (the Coast Myall) is a wattle native to New South Wales and Victoria. It can grow as a shrub or as a tree reaching 16m in height. This plant is reportedly toxic to livestock as the foliage (phyllodes) contain a glucoside which can produce hydrogen cyanide if severed. Acacia is a genus of shrubs and trees belonging to the subfamily Mimosoideae of the family Fabaceae, first described in Africa by the Swedish botanist Carl Linnaeus in 1773. Many non-Australian species tend to be thorny, whereas the majority of Australian acacias are not. They are pod-bearing, with sap and leaves typically bearing large amounts of tannins and condensed tannins that historically in many species found use as pharmaceuticals and preservatives.show more
