Welcome to AsianFagaceae.com:

The Complete Database for Information on the Evolutionary History, Diversity, Identification and Conservation of over 700 Species of Asian Trees!

On this website you will find information on all species of Fagaceae found in Asia, arranged according to genus, geographic region and research topics. The site also provides (links to) data on genomic information, regional species checklists, literature, ongoing fieldwork and botanical collections, as well as floristic works in progress and news updates on current projects. This site is under continuous development. In addition to over 700 species pages on Asian taxa, a further 400+ pages are available treating all the non-Asian species in Fagaceae, covering Fagaceae occurring in the Americas, Europe and the Mediterranean region. Finally, a list of common Quercus hybrids will be made available as well. Check back regularly for project news, new images/data and page updates!

Breaking news December 2020!

The Red List of Oaks 2020 has now been released and provides unprecedented details on the distribution of oak trees, population trends, and the dangers that they face. Among the 430 oak species found worldwide, 32 species are threatened in Mexico, 36 in China, 20 in Vietnam, and 16 species in the United States. The proportion of endangered oak trees is higher than the global threat levels for mammals or birds. Read more on this landmark achievement and what it will mean for our efforts to protect endangered species! >>Researchers estimate nearly one-third of oaks are threatened with extinction<< Report here Follow @ACTGenomics on Twitter, visit the homepage www.actg.science or keep an eye on the recent updates feed on this page!
