California Invasive Plant Inventory. http://www.fao.org/DOCREP/006/J1583E/J1583E00.htm, Hill R, 2005. The species produces an increase in plant cover, decreasing light available to understory plants, thus decreasing plant diversity and inhibiting the regeneration of native species. All isolates belonged to the genus Bradyrhizobium. Acacia longifolia is a worldwide invader that cause damage in ecosystems, expanding largely after wildfires, which promote germination of a massive seed bank. Survival Commission.
