Oaks are critical to the health and function of forest and shrubland habitats in the United States, but many native oaks are threatened with extinction in the wild.

To facilitate these efforts, we conducted a comprehensive survey of both the achievements and most urgent needs for in situ (on-site) and ex situ (off-site) conservation of priority at-risk oak species in the U.S.
