Picea (genus) (Pinaceae (family), Pinales (order), ... Living Organisms (hierarchy name))

 

Note: Genus of around 35 species of coniferous evergreen trees in the family Pinaceae, order Pinales, found in northern temperate and boreal. Mature trees may be 20-60 m (66-200 feet) tall. They are distinguished from similar genera by whorled branches, conical form, with needle-like leaves attached singly to the branches in a spiral fashion, and rough rather than smooth branches. As needles are shed throughout the life of the tree, the branches retain a rough appearance from the pulvinus, to which the needles had been attached. Comprises around 40 species of evergreen ornamental and timber trees native to the temperate and cold regions of the Northern Hemisphere. They are pyramidal trees with whorled branches and thin, scaly bark.

Additional Notes:
Dutch ..... Genus van ongeveer 35 soorten naaldachtige groenblijvende bomen uit de familie Pinaceae, orde Pinales, die voorkomen in noordelijke en Arctische gebieden. Volgroeide bomen kunnen 20-60 meter hoog worden. Ze zijn te onderscheiden van vergelijkbare geslachten door de spiraalvormige takken, de conische vorm met naaldachtige bladeren die in een spiraalpatroon afzonderlijk zijn bevestigd aan de takken en het feit dat de takken ruw zijn in plaats van glad. Omdat de naalden gedurende de gehele levensduur van de boom uitvallen, geven de bladkussentjes waar de naalden aan waren bevestigd de takken een blijvend ruw uiterlijk. Het genus bestaat uit ongeveer 40 soorten groenblijvende sier- en productiebomen, inheems in de gematigde en koude streken van het noordelijk halfrond. Het zijn piramidevormige bomen met spiraalvormige takken en een dunne schilferige schors.
