European white oak species (Quercus subg. Lepidobalanus) are known to share a substantial part of the nuclear and cytoplasmic genome. In spite of this fact, they have preserved their integrity. We analyzed genetic variation at thirteen isozyme loci in nine Quercus robur, ten Q. petraea, two Q. pubescens and two mixed (two-species) populations in Slovakia to assess the extent of allele sharing. Moreover, a detailed morphometric study based on thirteen leaf traits was done in the mixed stands. A… 
Interspecific differentiation and gene exchange among the Slovak Quercus sect. Quercus populations
TLDR
Two AFLP fragments associated with climatic variables, mainly with air vapour pressure and characteristics of temperature regime at the sites of origin, indicate that climatic adaptation is the mechanism driving interspecific divergence and maintaining integrity of white oak species.
Molecular, morphological, and ecological niche differentiation of sympatric sister oak species, Quercus virginiana and Q. geminata (Fagaceae).
TLDR
The data support earlier hypotheses that divergence in flowering time causes assortative mating, allowing these ecologically distinct sister species to occur in sympatry and help to explain the overdispersion of oak species in local communities.
Differentiation and hybridization of Quercus frainetto, Q. petraea, and Q. pubescens (Fagaceae): insights from macro-morphological leaf traits and molecular data
Macro-morphological leaf traits and genetic assignments were combined to study the differentiation and hybridization of three sympatric and inter-fertile white oak species (Quercus frainetto, Q.
Differentiation and hybridization of Quercus frainetto, Q. petraea, and Q. pubescens (Fagaceae): insights from macro-morphological leaf traits and molecular data
TLDR
Macro-morphological leaf traits and genetic assignments were combined to study the differentiation and hybridization of three sympatric and inter-fertile white oak species and a wider pattern of leaf traits compared to that exhibited by the pure individ- uals was observed.
Leaf morphological and genetic differentiation between Quercus robur L. and its closest relative, the drought-tolerant Quercus pedunculiflora K. Koch
TLDR
It is found that abaxial laminar pubescence is the most discriminating leaf descriptor between Q. robur and Q. pedunculiflora, and the very low level of nuclear divergence revealed by the isozyme markers and the incomplete sorting of Q. ROBUR suggests that the process of ecological speciation is not completed.
Hybridization and introgression in sympatric and allopatric populations of four oak species
TLDR
The results revealed that interspecific hybridization is commonly observed within the section Quercus, with members having tendency to hybridize, and extended the understanding of the evolutionary role of hybridization.
Comparative Pollen Morphological Analysis and Its Systematic Implications on Three European Oak (Quercus L., Fagaceae) Species and Their Spontaneous Hybrids
TLDR
Pollen morphology of three parental Quercus species and two spontaneous hybrids and three spontaneous hybrids of these species and hybrids was investigated in this study, showing that individuals from different as well as same taxa occurred in the same groups.
Genetic evidence of reproductive isolation in a remote enclave of Quercus pubescens in the presence of cross-fertile species
TLDR
The results showed that the study population is genetically distinct from both Q. petraea and Q. robur, which are the only common oaks in Poland, and the population is characterised by a low effective population size and limited gene dispersal, suggesting strong reproductive isolation from common species, implying alternative sources of atypical morphology.
From allozymes to NGS: population genetics of forest trees in Slovakia in the past 40 years
TLDR
This review summarizes the development of population genetics and population genomics studies of forest trees in Slovakia during the past 40 years to address several topics in evolutionary genetics and biogeography of trees: allozymes, uniparentally inherited chloroplast and mitochondrial markers, simple sequence repeats and single nucleotide polymorphisms.

Gene flow and hybridisation in a mixed oak forest (Quercus pyrenaica Willd. and Quercus petraea (Matts.) Liebl.) in central Spain
TLDR
A multivariate discriminant approach and a widely used clustering method were consistent with a low level of introgression between Q. petraea and Q. pyrenaica, suggesting that hybrids may be most common in contact zones due merely to physical proximity.
Electrophoretic analysis of genetic variation within and between populations of Quercus cerris, Q. pubescens, Q. petraea and Q. robur (Fagaceae) from eastern Austria.
TLDR
Allozyme data allow the elaboration of a dendrogram which is in reasonable accordance with the taxonomic classification, but also supports the importance of hybridization and introgression and underlined the fact that the allelic differentiation at the Got-2 locus corresponds with the phenotypic classification in samples from mixed populations.
Leaf morphometric variation in Quercus affinis and Q. laurina (Fagaceae), two hybridizing Mexican red oaks
TLDR
Results suggest that phenotypic plasticity, gene flow, hybridization and natural selection have shaped foliar variation in this oak complex.
Inheritance of isoenzymes in sessile oak (Quercus petraea (Matt.) Liebl.) and offspring from interspecific crosses
TLDR
The studies clearly demonstrate the great genetic similarity among oak species within the white oak section (Lepirlobnlai~~ts).

TLDR
It is shown that Quercus afares is genetically, morphologically and ecologically differentiated from its parental species, and can therefore be considered as a stabilised hybrid species.
Genetic differentiation of oak populations within the Quercus robur/Quercus petraea complex in Central and Eastern Europe
TLDR
Genetic structure of 25 indigenous populations of sessile and pedunculate oaks (Quercus petraea and Q. robur) was investigated using isozyme markers, finding one locus, coding for a substrate-nonspecific dehydrogenase, differentiated the two species.

Inheritance of Isozymes in Pedunculate Oak (Quercus robur L.)
TLDR
Fourteen full-sib families of pedunculate oak were utilized in order to study the segregation of isozymes and to verify their mode of inheritance and a nomenclature with respect to 76 codominant alleles is suggested.

TLDR
Morphological variability of oaks in Lorraine (northeastern France), was studied and it was concluded that Q robur and Q petraea are clearly separated with a few morphologically intermediate individuals (3.5%).

TLDR
The present findings add a further genetic component to this succession scheme, suggesting that unidirectional gene flow reinforces succession between the two species.
