    Description

    The hornbeam genus—Carpinus L.—includes about 35 species of deciduous, monoecious, small to large trees, that are native to the Northern Hemisphere from Europe to eastern Asia, south to the Himalayas, and in North and Central America (Furlow 1990; Hillier 1991; Krüssmann 1984; LHBH 1976; Suszka and others 1996). Five species are considered here. Hornbeams occur mainly as understory trees in rich, moist soils on bottomlands and on protected slopes (Metzger 1990; Rudolf and Phipps 1974).
