Despite the many reported benefits of A. mangium in agricultural, agroforestry and forestry systems, there is increasing evidence that because of its invasive properties, this species can exert profound negative impacts on soil, biodiversity, and human wellbeing. https://doi.org/10.1111/ddi.12182, Germon A, Guerrini IA, Bordron B, Bouillet J-P, Nouvellon Y, Gonçalves JLde M, Jourdan C, Paula RR, Laclau J-P (2018) Consequences of mixing Acacia mangium and Eucalyptus grandis trees on soil exploration by fine-roots down to a depth of 17 m.

In most cases, such plantations are situated in open vegetation (grassland or scrublands) and/or in areas adjoining natural vegetation which ensures large areas of habitat that are open to invasion. Mangium trees are the most dominant species planted in HTI [34, 35], with the main goal as the main raw material for the pulp and paper industry as well as other wood products [36,37]. Part of Science 320:1458–1460, CAS  1. 2002). They live in forests, bushes and really like the leaves of the giant sensitive plant ( Mimosa diplotricha ) and giant sensitive tree ( Mimosa pigra ).

Using 15N pulse-labelling, Paula et al. At the end of the first 7-year rotation of A. mangium and Eucalyptus urophylla × grandis plantations established in the Congolese coastal plains, eucalypt growth had benefitted from the N2 fixed by A. mangium, as shown by the higher wood biomass in the mixed-species than in pure eucalypt stands (Epron et al. The massive seed production of A. mangium in the absence of native enemies is the fundamental driver of invasions. Another beneficial impact of A. mangium is its ability to contribute to climate-change mitigation goals, since emissions of N2O, one of the main greenhouse gases, may be reduced by the application of its bark tannins in water-saturated soil (Matsubara and Ohta 2015).
