Abstract

The genus of true cedars—Cedrus—consists of 4 (or fewer) closely related species of tall, oleoresin-rich, monoecious, coniferous, evergreen trees, with geographically separated distributions (Arbez and others 1978; Bariteau and Ferrandes 1992; Farjon 1990; Hillier 1991; LHBH 1976; Maheshwari and Biswas 1970; Tewari 1994; Vidakovie 1991). The cedars are restricted to the montane or high montane zones of mountains situated roughly between 15°W and 80°E and 30 to 40°N (Farjon 1990).
