  HON Allergy Glossary, Fagaceae Pollens
The chestnut or Castanea genus is a member of Fagaceae family of trees and shrubs, typically found in Northern temperate and subtropical regions.
The Fagus or beech genus of the Fagaceae family consists of around 10 species of deciduous trees, native to temperate and subtropical regions of the Northern Hemisphere.
However, beech is also used in reference to the Nothofagus (false beech, red beech, most of the trees referred to as 'beeches' in Australia are of this genus), red box (a member of Myrtaceae but often called Australian beech) and Malay bush beech (a member of Verbenaceae).

 Fagaceae in Flora of North America @ efloras.org
In the Western Hemisphere, Fagaceae are found from southern Canada to Colombia; they are absent or infrequent in most of the northern Great Plains and northern Rocky Mountain region.
Fagaceae are one of the most important families of Northern Hemisphere woody plants in terms of total biomass and economic use.
The most important diagnostic feature of Fagaceae is the cupule, which occurs as the cup or cap of the acorn in Quercus and Lithocarpus and the spiny bur that surrounds the fruits of Castanea and Chrysolepis.

 The Family Fagaceae in Oregon, Part I
The new treatment of Fagaceae in volume 3 of the Flora of North America (1997) by Kevin C. Nixon, Paul S. Manos, Richard J. Jensen and Cornelius H. Muller has excellent distribution maps, leaf and fruit drawings and keys.
The cupule is the cap of the acorn in Lithocarpus and Quercus and the spiny bur that surrounds the fruits in Chrysolepis.
The chinquapins are distinct from other Oregon Fagaceae in their fruit structure, with a densely spiny involucre that completely encloses one to several angular or round nuts.

 Duke University Herbarium Project on Fagaceae
Ideally, the study of the pattern and process of species diversification or speciation requires a robust estimate of phylogeny, accurate knowledge of taxonomic diversity, and a rich fossil record.
In Fagaceae, these criteria are nearly in place, making it a premier group for the research.
While the family Fagaceae is well-studied, the synthesis proposed here has not been attempted before, and its implications reach beyond systematic biology and into emerging investigations of the causes of diversification and its consequences to molecular and phylogenetic diversity.

The Fagaceae (Oak Family) members are trees and shrubs with alternate leaves.
In Chinquapins, similar bracts form a spiny bur that encloses 1-3 nuts.
Both Oaks and Chinquapins may be propagated from their nuts, and are useful additions to native gardens.On Montara Mountain, Fagaceae members include the Golden Chinquapin (Chrysolepis chrysophylla minor) and the Coast Live Oak (Quercus agrifolia).

 ARS | Publication request: Sawtooth Oak (Quercus Acutissima, Fagaceae) in North America
Citation: Whittemore, A.T. Sawtooth Oak (Quercus Acutissima, Fagaceae) in North America.
Interpretive Summary: The sawtooth oak, Quercus acutissima, is now widely planted in eastern North America, both for wildlife food and as a street and park tree.
Planting large stands of Quercus acutissima in wilderness or revegetating areas for wildlife food is likely to result in the naturalization of this exotic species and its spread into adjacent habitats, but the use of sawtooth oak as a landscape tree in developed areas poses much less danger of escape.
