Provenance & quality

The chloroplast DNA marker data are derived from Acacia senegal samples collected by CEH and partner organisations (Kenya Forestry Research Institute [KEFRI] and Institut Sénégalais de Recherches Agricoles [ISRA]) staff. The samples were collected from 297 mature trees in 66 sites across its natural range in sub-Saharan Africa, the Arabian Peninsula, Pakistan and India.
