Abstract

Over recent decades, significant collections of Quercus have been established in different parts of the globe. Together, they constitute a valuable conservation resource and deserve to be documented and shared in a way that is easily accessible to interested parties. The Cultivated Oaks of the World project aims to create a database of major oak collections around the world, aggregating data provided by each collection and using a simple format that allows for easy input and includes straightforward filter and search features. In addition, geolocated trees can be automatically mapped and the various collections viewed on a map of the world. The project is closely aligned with the goals of the IOS, one of which is to facilitate the location and distribution of living material for propagation of oaks.
