Collections Strengths: Quercus (oaks)

John M. Tucker, Professor-emeritus and author of the key to oaks in the Jepson Manual: Higher Plants of California, researched oaks for seven decades. As a result, we have approximately 9,500 specimens of well-curated Quercus from all regions of the world (with an emphasis on California and the Neotropics). The label data from all of our California Quercus specimens have been databased and are available on-line.
