I'm looking for information regarding Desert Ironwood (Olneya tesota), Palo Verde (Parkinsonia floridum), Mesquite (Prosopis glandulosa), Catclaw (Acacia gregii), and Sweetbush (Bebbia juncea).

I'm particularly interested time of year it germinates, how long seeds last until they germinate, conditions of germination, typical soils, use by wildlife and burros, how long they live, when they set seed, are they warm season or cool season plants, how they react to disturbance, root depth, survivability especially in drought conditions
