Juglans

 

a genus of plants of the family Juglandaceae. They are monoecious deciduous trees with large odd-pinnate leaves. The flowers are in the axils of the bracts. The staminate flowers are in drooping multiflorous catkins; the pistillate flowers are in few-flowered apical inflorescences. The fruit is a drupe with a green fleshy husk and a hard, woody inner shell. The edible seed does not have an endosperm. There are 14 or 15 species of Juglans (according to other data, up to 40), growing in mixed broad-leaved forests, predominantly in the mountains of Southern Europe, Asia, and America. Many species have been raised since ancient times for their nutritious and tasty fruits and for their beautiful, valuable wood. They have also been cultivated as ornamentals for a long time. In the USSR two species grow wild: the English walnut and the Manchurian walnut. Six species have been introduced into the USSR.

La presencia en el registro arqueobotanico de determinados taxones como algunos frutales, Olea, Castanea, Vitis o Juglans, que constituyen un elemento importante en la produccion alimentaria de los paises de la cuenca mediterranea, muchas veces puede ser interpretada como un indicador importante del aumento de la actividad humana y la antropizacion del paisaje (Carrion et al.
In this study, three lots of walnut Juglans regia), containing 250 g each, were collected in local trade in the city of Sao Jose do Rio Preto, Sao Paulo State, Brazil, between the months of January and February, 2010, while three lots of pecan nut (Carya illinoensis), containing 200 g each, came from the city of Austin, Texas--USA, acquired between January and April, 2010.
Estos bosques son de gran interes para la conservacion ya que presentan un buen numero de especies en alguna categoria de amenaza, como lo son Juglans neotropica (EN), Cedrela montana (NT), Guatteria lehmannii (VU) y Quercus humboldtii (VU), convirtiendose en puntos estrategicos para el mantenimiento de la biodiversidad; por lo que se hace necesario adelantar mas estudios que nos permitan conocer la dinamica de estos bosques.
