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. Ongoing conservation efforts exist for some species, but with growing threats and limited resources and time, prioritization and coordination of conservation actions is critical. 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.
