The pair were among 131 different sub-species that Crisp's team identified within the genus Daviesia
, which are commonly known as 'egg and bacon peas' due to the colors of their flowers.
Floral development in Daviesia
cordata (Leguminosae: Papilionoideae: Mirbelieae) and its systematic implications.
Burdon and Thrall believe that by bringing together the best lines of bradyrhizobia and a range of native shrubby legume species -- in genera such as Acacia, Daviesia
, Dillwynia, Oxylobium, Hovea and Pultenea -- revegetation projects throughout the country will be given a significant boost.
Comparative population genetic structure of the rare woodland shrub Daviesia
suaveolens and its common congenor D.
These bees are thought to be pollen specialists on the so-called bacon and egg peas in the genera Daviesia
and Pultenaea (Beardsell, 1986).
