Exploring Phylogenetic Relationships between Hundreds of Plant Fatty Acids Synthesized by Thousands of Plants. more details ...
Abstract Ten Acacia species belonging to the subgenera Acacia and Aculeiferum were examined for their seed proximate compositions and fatty acid pro"les. The fatty acids were determined by GC and GC}MS. Some of the taxa analysed were found to contain hexacosanoic acid as well as other common fatty acids. A numerical analysis suggested a partial separation among the taxa belonging to subgenera Acacia and Aculeiferum. Acacia emilioana appears related with species of subgenus Aculeiferum.
