"Within the same group [of Oaks] ... leaves alone must not be used for final identification, as, even on the same tree, the leaves may vary more among themselves than between those of other species.... Therefore, leaves are of great assistance if (1) an average leaf is looked for, and (2) final identification is based on other details taken in conjunction with the leaves." — George W.D. Symonds, The Tree Identification Book
