The article presents the various hybrids of oaks in the French Riviera. It states that the region contains a population of rare chance hybrids whose origin is due to the close cohabitation of the parents. They include Quercus (Q) xhispanica Lam., Q. suber pollinated by Q. cerris, Q. cerris pollinated by Q. suber, Quercus xmorissi Borzi, and Quercus xauzandri Gren. & Godr.
