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.
