Genetic variability in native and recently invaded ecosystems by Acacia longifolia: a global model species

Acacia longifolia is an Australian leguminous species, and one of the most invasive and dangerous species worldwide. However, not many studies consider its “native-invasive” duality, in particular the roles of genetic variability versus phenotypic plasticity in native and invasive ranges. This kind of data is of the upmost importance for future control and eradication actions. Therefore, the aim is to build a worldwide database (Alongifolia network) with microsatellite and phenological data that will combine information about A. longifolia in native and invasive ranges.
