Seedling recruitment is linked to rainfall pattern, and under favorable conditions, young plants attain maturity in 2–5 years (Fig. 3). Acacia nilotica, when mature, forms dense thorny thickets (900 plants/ha), and mature plants live for c. 40 years (Fig. 3). The golden-yellow flower-bearing inflorescence is ball-shaped and grows in groups of two to six on one shoot. The plants have distinct flat sickle-shaped pods, each 10–15 cm long, bearing 8–15 seeds (Spies and March, 2004). A mature tree will produce up to 30,000 seeds per year, and seeds, when buried in soil, can remain viable up to seven years (Fig.

Acacia nilotica was declared a noxious weed in Queensland in 1957, and is now a weed of national significance in Australia. In the Mitchell grass downs of western Queensland, which cover around 22m ha of natural grassland, A. nilotica has infested more than 6m ha (Fig. 1) and 2000 km of bore drains (Mackey, 1997; Spies and March, 2004). Acacia nilotica is also present in the coastal regions of Queensland, the Northern Territory, and Western Australia (Spies and March, 2004), and has the potential to infest vast areas of Australia’s native grassland ecosystems (Fig.
