Leaf epidermal features are useful for elucidating the taxonomy and systematics of oak species. Quercus Group Ilex has a wide distribution mainly in subtropical areas of Eurasia with rich fossil records since the Oligocene, but no comprehensive study has ever been conducted on its diversity of leaf epidermal features. We compared the leaf epidermal features of 37 species of Quercus Group Ilex and Q. suber from Group Cerris using light microscopy (LM) and scanning electron microscopy (SEM). A… Expand
Microhistological characterisation of some species of the genus Quercus L. from Sierra Morena range (southern Iberian Peninsula)
Abstract The micromorphological characters of leaves in the genus Quercus have proved very useful in their taxonomy. A microhistological study of the most representative species of the genus QuercusExpand
Pollen morphology of Quercus sect. Ilex and its relevance for fossil pollen identification in southwest China
TLDR
Based on a comparison with modern pollen size and ornamentation, fossil pollen grains of the Quaternary Qinghai Lake core can be assigned to the Chinese southwest mountain oak group of Quercus sect. Expand
The Application and Limitation of Universal Chloroplast Markers in Discriminating East Asian Evergreen Oaks
TLDR
Test whether the four chloroplast markers atpI-atpH, matK, psbA-trnH, and ycf1, can discriminate the two evergreen oak sections in Asia – Cyclobalanopsis and Ilex and found that universal chloroblast DNA (cpDNA) barcoding markers could resolve two clades in Quercus. Expand
Taxonomy and palaeoecology of two widespread western Eurasian Neogene sclerophyllous oak species: Quercus drymeja Unger and Q. mediterranea Unger
TLDR
Quercus mediterranea, although readily recognizable as a distinct morphotype in early to late Miocene plant assemblages, may in fact represent small leaves of the same plants that constitute the Quercus drymeja complex. Expand
An Updated Infrageneric Classification of the Oaks: Review of Previous Taxonomic Schemes and Synthesis of Evolutionary Patterns
TLDR
This chapter proposes an updated classification of Quercus recognising two subgenera with eight sections, and considers morphological traits, molecular-phylogenetic relationships, and the evolutionary history of one of the most important temperate woody plant genera. Expand
Development of Chloroplast and Nuclear DNA Markers for Chinese Oaks (Quercus Subgenus Quercus) and Assessment of Their Utility as DNA Barcodes
TLDR
A low variation rate of the chloroplast genome, and complex speciation patterns involving incomplete lineage sorting, interspecific hybridization and introgression, possibly have negative impacts on the species assignment and phylogeny of oak species. Expand
Complete Chloroplast Genome Sequence and Phylogenetic Analysis of Quercus bawanglingensis Huang, Li et Xing, a Vulnerable Oak Tree in China
TLDR
The analysis of the cp genome of Q. bawanglingensis provides crucial genetic information for further studies of this vulnerable species and the taxonomy, phylogenetics and evolution of Quercus. Expand
Complete Chloroplast Genome Sequence and Phylogenetic Analysis of Quercus bawanglingensis
Quercus bawanglingensis Huang, Li et Xing, an endemic evergreen oak of the genus Quercus (Fagaceae) in China, is currently listed in the Red List of Chinese Plants as a vulnerable (VU) plant. NoExpand
IR characterization of plant leaves, endemic to semi-tropical regions, in two senescent states.
TLDR
The easiest and the most cost-effective strategy would be to implement an electro-optical remote sensing radiometric system featuring a commercial camera incorporating a traditional charge-coupled device (CCD) or complementary metal-oxide-semiconductor (CMOS) detectors and a wideband transmission filter, from about 0.8 to 1 µm.

Leaf epidermal features of Quercus subgenus Cyclobalanopsis (Fagaceae) and their systematic significance
TLDR
Most leaf epidermal features show a mosaic pattern, although their numerous variations offered valuable resources for species identification, supporting recognition of Cyclobalanopsis as a subgenus of Quercus rather than as a separate genus. Expand
Clarification of the identity of Quercus patkoiensis and Q. semiserratoides (Fagaceae) using leaf epidermal features
TLDR
Leaf epidermal features are useful not only to distinguish genera in Fagaceae, but can also assist in species identification. Expand
Leaf epidermis of Quercus subgen. Cyclobalanopsis (Oerst.) Schneid. (Fagaceae)
TLDR
The characters of leaf epidermis (mainly epidermal cells, stomata, trichomes) have been examined in 48 species of Quercus subgen and the jellyfish-like trichome, observed only in Q. sichouensis, is reported in the Fagaceae for the first time. Expand
Erinea formation on Quercus ilex leaves: anatomical, physiological and chemical responses of leaf trichomes against mite attack.
TLDR
The results showed that the structural and functional changes in leaf trichomes upon mite attack may be an effort of the leaf to compensate the damage caused by the pest. Expand
Foliar trichomes of the evergreen and semi-deciduous species of the genus Quercus (Fagaceae) in the Iberian Peninsula
TLDR
All species of the genus Quercus living in the Iberian Peninsula show some exclusive particularities that permit their identification using these characters, and the abaxial surface of the leaf always has more trichomes than the adaxial and provides more characters for identification. Expand
PATTERNS OF VARIATION IN FOLIAR TRICHOMES OF EASTERN NORTH AMERICAN QUERCUS
TLDR
Scanning electron microscopy of leaf trichomes of the forty two native species of oaks in eastern North America indicates five patterns of variability that are predictable and appear to be held within rather narrow limits. Expand
CUTICULAR STRUCTURE OF QUERCUS PRESENESCENS FROM THE PLIOCENE IN BAOSHAN,YUNNAN,AND ITS PALAEOCLIMATIC IMPLICATIONS
TLDR
The fossil is different from living Q.senescens in having no trichome, which implies that the common existence of trichomes in living Quercus sect.Heterobalanus may have been the result of adaptation to recent climatic change. Expand
FOLIAR TRICHOME VARIATION IN QUERCUS SECTION PROTOBALANUS (FAGACEAE)
TLDR
The total complement of non-glandular trichomes documented in section Protobalanus is as diverse as that observed in both the larger red (black) and white oak groups. Expand
European and Mediterranean oaks ( Quercus L.; Fagaceae): SEM characterization of the micromorphology
TLDR
Micromorphological characteristics (trichomes, waxes, stomata) of the abaxial leaf surface of European and Mediterranean oaks are examined to ascertain whether it is possible to distinguish the different species taxonomically using these features. Expand
Morphology of Foliar Trichomes of the Chinese Cork Oak Quercus variabilis by Electron Microscopy and Three-Dimensional Surface Profiling
TLDR
This is the first report on the morphological and ultrastructural characterization of foliar trichomes of the oak species and an apparent proliferation of trichome was evident on the adaxial surface of the dominant sprouts. Expand
