The article presents information on the Quercus Macrocarpa or the Bur Oak and how it adapts to the tallgrass conditions in Nearctic Savanna. The Bur Oak is known to have a unique adaptability because they are enclosed by cupules or caps by more than 50% as developed from the floral involucre. Oaks are heterogenous and have introgressive populations with hybrid ancestry within the subgenous of oak called Lepidobalanus.
