Biology

The Albizia is a hermaphroditic tree (2), meaning that the flowers have both male and female reproductive parts and are self-fertilising. The pod-like fruits are winged (5), and so are presumably dispersed by wind, carrying the seeds away from the parent tree. Albizias need sufficient light to germinate and develop and are not able to grow and survive in deep forest shade (5). The albizia plays an important role in the lives of other species; goats feed upon it and the flowers provide nectar for bees (2).
