dc.description.abstract The evolution of plant ecosystems during the Cenophytic was complex and influenced by both abiotic and biotic factors. Among abiotic forces were tectonics, the distribution of continents and seas, climate, and fires; of biotic factors were herbivores, pests, and intra- and interspecific competition. The genus Quercus L. (Quercoideae, Fagaceae) evolved in this context to become an established member of the plant communities of the Northern Hemisphere, commencing in the Paleogene and spreading to a diverse range of environments in the later Cenozoic. Its palaeontological record, dominated by leaves and pollen, but also including wood, fruits and flowers, is widespread in Eurasia and North America. Consequently, a great number of species have been described, from the 19th century to the present day. Although Quercus is currently an ecologically and economically important component of the forests in many places of the Northern Hemisphere and Southeastern Asia, no comprehensive summary of its fossil record exists. The present work, written by an international team of palaeobotanists, provides the first synthesis of the fossil history of the oaks from their appearance in the early Paleogene to the Quaternary. es_ES
