Abstract

The Oaks of the Americas Conservation Network (OACN) is an international consortium of oak experts aimed at meeting aimed at filling the gaps in oak research and conservation in North and Central America. As part of their larger effort to connect science to conservation and catalyze collaboration between important oak experts, OACN held a Workshop on the Taxonomy of Rare Mexican Oaks at the Jardín Botánico of the Benemérita Universidad Autónoma de Puebla (Mexico) in September 2017. This workshop discussed the taxonomic and conservation issues facing many Mexican oak species, and it is part of a broader set of projects addressing oaks in this region.
