Acacia[edit]

I hope I am reply correctly. Feel free to contact me directly: tpyoung@ucdavis.edu

The Acacia name changes hanve been a very contentious issue. Here is our stock answer: "The revision of the Acacia genus has not been accepted by the vast majority of non-taxonomists, and is likely to be revisited (again) in the 2017 Nomenclature Section of the International Botanical Congress. Until then, it has been recommended that the use Acacia s.l. be used, continuing to refer to all Acacia taxa from the entire range as Acacia (Smith and Figueiredo 2011) . We have followed this convention."

We have been prepared to argue that we report our species as "Acacia (Vachellia) drepanolobium", or as a worst case "Vachellia (Acacia) drepanolobium", but in practice, it has never been an issue. In the eight years since the 2006 Congress, we have submitted literally dozens of mss than mention (and usually focus on) African Acacia spp. and not once has an editor of reviewer demanded or even requested that we use the new genera. There was one query, but they were satisfied with our demurral. It might be worthwhile doing a literature search to quantify non-compliance. I did an informal check on several species (using ISI) last year, and found that virtually the only users of the new genera were taxonomists.

Unfortunately Wikipedia has jumped on board with the Acacia name changes, confusing far more than enlightening. My attempts to reverse this ill-advised change (or at least clarify it) have fallen on deaf ears.

Gideon F. Smith & Estrela Figueiredo (2011). "Conserving Acacia Mill. with a conserved type: What happened in Melbourne?". Taxon 60 (5): 1504–1506.

"Until then [the 2017 Botanical Conference] it is our view that those who have to refer to any taxon of this group do so following the classification that recognises Acacia s.l. This means that all names of Acacia taxa from its entire distribution range will continue to be called Acacia ." (pg. 1506).
