Acacias are a ubiquitous and much-loved part of the Australian landscape, to the extent that one acacia species is Australia's national floral emblem. Wattle seeds, shown here in the pod of an acacia, Acacia baileyana, the Cootamundra wattle, are an important food item for many animals. These include cockatoos, which eat the seeds, and ants, which eat the food body attached to the seed and thereby help in seed dispersal, and for people as well.
