Oak species show a wide variation in morphological and physiological characters, and boundaries between closely related species are often not clear-cut. Still, despite frequent interspecific gene flow, oaks maintain distinct morphological and physiological adaptations. In sympatric stands, spatial distribution of species with different ecological requirements is not random but constrained by soil and other micro-environmental factors. Here, we discuss factors that may influence the maintenance… CONTINUE READING
