  1. Legend: O = no nodules formed; N = outgrowths on roots, superficially similar to nodules but ineffective; I = nodules formed are inefficient; F = nitrogen fixing nodules formed (these may not all be fully effective, but plants gave acetylene reduction values at least twice that of non-nodulated control plants).
  2. *This is taken to include Acacia subgenus Acacia, now thought to be closely related to tribe Mimoseae and given the generic name Vachellia by some.
  3. This is taken to include Acacia, subgenera Aculeiferum (Ac) and Phyllodineae (P). The species listed below are now also included in genera Senegalia and Acacia respectively. Species from other genera in former Acacia have not been studied here.
  4. 1 Nodulation data from [9]; 2 This species has been transferred to an as yet unnamed genus by [27]; 3 This genus was formerly in Piptadenia [27]; 4 Nodulation data from [6]. Nodulation data for other legumes are from unpublished data from E.K. James and L. Moulin.
