The Oak at La Porteña al Sur

I recently had the opportunity of seeing one of the largest pedunculate oaks (Quercus robur) in South America. It stands at the edge of the large lawn in front of the homestead at La Porteña al Sur, once part of a vast estancia (estate) with a rich history stretching back to arrival of the Spaniards in the region of what is now Buenos Aires. The tree is remarkable for the size it has attained in a relatively short time, but also for its habit.

Update on the Quercus suber at Parque Anchorena (and Others)

The Anchorena Alcornoque revisted and a stand of century-old cork oaks in Montevideo, Uruguay.

IOS-member Teodoro Marañón has sent me links to a special issue of the Spanish journal "Ecosistemas" (Ecosystems) that he has co-edited.
