Because of on-going taxonomic research the species composition of genera may change. These changes most commonly occur because new species are described or existing ones are reduced to synonymy or transferred to other genera. It is usually very difficult for non-specialist users to keep track of these changes. Such nomenclatural problems are especially relevant to Acacia because of the impending subdivision of the genus.
Currently accepted names of acacias at a global scale are therefore provided here.
