Wattles (Acacia spp) are an important component of most Australian ecosystems and, as a group, are one of the most widely recognised native plants. However, there is surprisingly little recorded about the relationship between wattles and fauna. This paper looks at the ways in which wattles can provide resources for native fauna, brings together published records relating to acacias and fauna in the south-west of Western Australia, and discusses what this means for revegetation.
