Abstract

Acacia saligna is being developed as an agroforestry crop for the southern agricultural regions of Australia. This study investigated the breeding system of A. saligna to generate basic knowledge for breeding and utilization of the species. Allozyme markers were used to investigate the mating system of four populations of the species. All the populations had high outcrossing rates, with a mean multilocus outcrossing rate of 0.91. The implications of a highly outcrossed mating system to the utilization of A. saligna are discussed.
