"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. This does not mean that there is no typical shape or shapes for any given species, but only that not every leaf will take a typical form." — George W.D. Symonds, The Tree Identification Book
