Brief Summary

Distribution, Assoications and Historical Occurrence

Acacia gummifera is chiefly currently known to the Mediterranean acacia-argania dry woodlands and succulent thickets of Morocco, in association with plants such as Periploca laevigata, Senecio anthephorbium, Launaea arborescens and Warionia saharae.  However there is evidence that this tree occurred in Biblical times as far east as the Holy Land.
