The populations of the taxon display considerable genetic variability partly explained by polyploidy.

In extremely arid conditions, it may occur as a small, wiry bush. While in the intestinal system, the beetles may die and the surviving seeds may germinate if the rddiana is rainy. The range of seed-eating coleoptera that are parasites of the Acacia raises questions that need answering concerning the trophic and ecological specialization of coleoptera, identification of defence mechanisms used by Acacia, and the characterisation of co-evolution of the insects and the host plant.

The tree belongs to the Mimosaceae family, Leguminosae.

In another connection, it will be useful to improve our knowledge of the diversity and the ecology of arbuscular mycorrhizial fungi in the soil in order to select the most efficient as innoculum. Drivers know that they should not pass with their cars under Acacia trees, because the thorns of branches that fell can puncture tires.

Acacia raddiana is very thorny. The Umbrella thorn is also an important species for rehabilitation of degraded arid land; it tolerates drought, wind, salinity and a wide range of soil types, and has the additional benefit of fixing nitrogen – an essential plant nutrient – in the soil via its interaction with symbiotic root bacteria.

The Talmud also mentions a medicine made from Acacia. One ton of wattle or mimosa bark contained about lbs of pure tannin.

Acacia is repeatedly mentioned in the Book of Exodusperhaps referring to Acacia raddianain regards to the construction of the Tabernacle. The young leaves and branches are glabrous. However these have quite frequently ended in failure, due to the incapacity of the introduced exotic species to adapt to drought and to the low level of fertility of the areas in which they were introduced. It grows in the Negev Desert and has also penetrated less dry and warm areas.

The genus was first described from Africa by C. The tree grows deep roots. In the legume-bacteria symbiosis, the factor likely to impede nodulation and nitrogen fixation is generally not the absence of efficient bacterial strains, but one or more ecological factors that limit their efficiency.

Parts of the tree including roots, shoots, and pods are also often used by natives for a vast number of purposes including decorations, weaponstoolsand medicines.
