Please Do Not Redirect[edit]

Please do not redirect "White Oaks" to this page. White Oaks is also a famous town in Lincoln County, New Mexico that sprang-up during the gold rushes of the 3rd quarter of the 19th Century. (Possibly try: Plant|White Oak ?) WB2 (talk) 21:08, 13 March 2009 (UTC)

Q. devia and Q. tuberculata[edit]

Two mexican oaks; anyone know which section these species belong to? Tom Radulovich 04:33, 13 November 2005 (UTC)

The latter is a variety of Q. coccinea (Scarlet oak), so it would be in section Lobatae. I am not sure about Q. devia. Schzmo 00:14, 9 March 2006 (UTC)

Q. glauca?[edit]

Where to put Q. glauca, the 'ring-cup oak'? There is a drawing at Image:Quercus_glauca_Bra65.png which is from D. Brandis, Illustrations of the Forest Flora of North-West and Central India, 1874 -- Rwst 09:11, 18 March 2006 (UTC)

Cyclobalanopsis glauca as per Flora of China - MPF 15:52, 25 June 2006 (UTC)

Quercus dilatata[edit]

Quercus dilatata is listed both in the white oaks section and separately at the bottom as unknown subgenus. Is white oak correct?

Quercus costaricensis?[edit]

Anyone know where Quercus costaricensis fits in the list? 19:35, 13 September 2007 (UTC)

Q. afares, Q. ithaburensis, Q. lusitanica[edit]

Anyone know where to place these? Quercus afares appears to be a stable hybrid of Q.suber from section Cerris and Q. canariensis from section Mesobalanus. Don't know where Quercus ithaburensis (Mt. Tabor Oak) and Quercus lusitanica (Portuguese Oak) belong. Tom Radulovich (talk) 06:52, 13 February 2008 (UTC)

I'd say that it's probably best to leave Q. afares out of the list until it's relationship is more fully understood, or perhaps list it under Cerris with notes about it's relationship to Q. canariensis since it's suggested that it's genetically more Q. suber than Q. canariensis. Q. afares is an odd one for sure and even if it is a stabilized hybrid of Q. suber and Q. canariensis, isn't that just another way of saying it's a young species for all intensive purposes? Especially since it seems to maintain it's ecological, morphological, and genetic distinction from both supposed parent species(as much as any other Quercus species) while growing in the same geographic area with them both.

Q. ithaburensis should be placed in the Cerris section and Q. lusitanica (Gall Oak or Lusitanian Oak, Quercus faginea is Portuguese Oak, I believe confusion between these 2 species has caused confusion with the English common names as well) should be listed under the Quercus section.

Thanks! Tom Radulovich (talk) 20:54, 25 May 2008 (UTC)

Tribu13 (talk) 18:23, 31 August 2009 (UTC) Q. lusitanica = Q. fraineto (Flora Iberica vol xx, Amaral-Franco). The smallest Quercus in Europe. It is a bush in Spain, but it can reach tree status in some Portuguese locations. Q. canariensis, Q. faginea, Q. lusitanica and Q. pyrenaica should be grouped with Q. pubescens, Q. robur, Q. petraea.... (Petit et al., 2002 For. Ecol. Manage.)

Is Q. macrolepis a synonym for Q. ithaburensis and Q. aegilops? —Preceding unsigned comment added by (talk) 09:21, 15 May 2010 (UTC)

Quercus aegilops is a synonym name for 4 different Oak species, so it's a noma confusa and not accepted. Q. macrolepis is either a good species or a subspecies of Q. ithaburensis depending on which authority you follow. Q. ithaburensis is a good species and accepted by all authorities.Kmanblue (talk) 07:46, 16 May 2010 (UTC)

Quercus infectoria[edit]

Any idea where Q. infectoria (Aleppo Oak, Cyprus Oak) belongs? Tom Radulovich (talk) 20:54, 25 May 2008 (UTC)

Quercus infectoria is in the Cerris section. Glad to help out! Kmanblue (talk) 11:05, 27 May 2008 (UTC)

Q. dalechampii, Q. polycarpa[edit]

I didn't find them in the list:

  • Quercus dalechampii
  • Quercus polycarpa

They're southeastern-european species. No other data. (talk) 20:40, 16 August 2008 (UTC)

  • Quercus dalechampii should be on the list, I'll add it.
  • Quercus polycarpa is a synonym for Quercus petraea subsp. iberica so it shouldn't be added.

Which is the source of the list here? I want to use it in the German WP. Maybe you can help me. Thanks and Regards --IKAl (talk) 18:45, 18 February 2012 (UTC)

Q. boissieri, the Levantine variant of the Q. infectoria[edit]

Where does it belong to? Named after Pierre Edmond Boissier, 19th-century Swiss botanist who covered Europe and the Middle East from Turkey to Lybia. The problem is, many more trees are called after him, including some oaks! Many sources mix it together with Q. infectoria, a very close relative with slightly smaller leaves, named in English Aleppo / Cyprus / Asian / Dawny / Gall / Gall Nut Oak.
