The article focuses on the botanic oak collection created by Béatrissé Chassé and Gérard Lionet in l'Arboretum des Pouyouleix, France for scientific studies. It states that the resources at the botanic oak collection represent a priceless contribution to the research in the phylogeny of the genus Quercus, such as by Antoine Kremer and François Hubert. It discusses the systematics, phylogeny and evolutionary history of oaks.
