Evolution of photosynthetic organs in Acacia

Study the evolutionary ecology of Australasian plants and explore the evolution of photosynthetic organs in Acacia.

This honours project probes how and why did most species in this genus give up on true leaves and instead rely on flattened leaf petioles to deliver carbohydrates to the plant?
