Linking science to practice to achieve effective conservation of oak diversity
The Oaks of the Americas Conservation Network (OACN) is an international, interdisciplinary consortium of oak experts from botanical gardens, arboreta, universities, government agencies, and non-government organizations working toward the common goal of studying and protecting oaks (genus Quercus). In spite of their great ecological, economical, and cultural importance across the world, there are still critical gaps in our knowledge of this group in the Americas, and many oak species are threatened with extinction. OACN focuses on linking science to practice to achieve effective conservation of this important tree group.
