Abstract

The analysis on non-protein amino acids in seeds of Acacia species has enabled chemotaxonomic classification of the genus to be proposed. The identification of potential biochemical pathways responsible for the production of the marker amino acids has indicated a possible divergence of species. With the aid f a cladistic analysis, an evolutionary tree most congruent with the proposed biochemical pathways has been selected.
