Distribution of Quercus in Greece

Dear iNaturalists,

I decided to start a project called "Distribution of Oaks (Quercus) in Greece".
I started this project in order to give everyone a clear picture of the distribution and botanical systematic of oaks. (Link to the project:
The following list shows all Quercus species represented in Greece:

Quercus alnifolia (endemic to Cyprus, arrived via anthropogenic means to Attica region)

Quercus aucheri (endemic to Southeast Aegean Sea and Western Anatolia)

Quercus cerris (endemic to whole Greece)

Quercus coccifera (endemic to whole Greece)

Quercus frainetto (endemic to whole Greece, especially North and South Pindos and Eastern Aegean islands)

Quercus ilex (endemic to whole Greece)
