Notes: Albizia stands as one of the few genera with a wide distribution spanning different continents where the heartwood of all species consistently fluoresces under blacklight. Under suitable environmental conditions, A. lebbeck forms dense thickets that outcompete native plant species by inhibiting the germination and establishment of seedlings, with a consequent reduction in native species diversity (PIER, 2016).
