Thuja (genus) (Cupressaceae (family), Pinales (order), ... Living Organisms (hierarchy name))

 

Note: Genus containing 5 species of resinous, evergreen ornamental and timber conifers of the cypress family (Cupressaceae), native to North America and eastern Asia. The genus is monophyletic and sister to Thujopsis or false arborvitae. Arborvitae are trees or shrubs, usually pyramidal in habit, with thin, scaling outer bark and fibrous inner bark, horizontal or ascending branches, and characteristically flattened, spraylike branchlet systems. Each branchlet has four rows of tiny, scalelike leaves. Juvenile leaves are much longer and needlelike and in some species may persist along with the mature foliage. Male and female reproductive structures (cones) are borne at the tips of different branchlets of the same tree, the male cones rounded and reddish or yellowish, the female very small and green or tinged with purple. They are commonly known as arborvitae (from Latin for tree of life) or thujas; several species are widely known as cedar but they are not true cedars (Cedrus).

Additional Notes:
Dutch ..... Genus van vijf soorten harshoudende, groenblijvende sier- en productieconiferen uit de cipresfamilie (Cupressaceae), die voorkomt in Noord-Amerika en het oosten van Azië. Het genus is monofyletisch en verwant met de Thujopsis. Levensbomen zijn bomen of heesters met een doorgaans piramidale bouw en dunne, geschubde buitenschors en vezelige binnenschors, horizontale of omhooglopende takken en kenmerkende afgeplatte waaiervormige takjesstelsels. Ieder takje heeft vier rijen zeer kleine, schubachtige blaadjes. De jonge blaadjes zijn veel langer en naaldachtig, en sommige soorten handhaven zich naast het volwassen gebladerte. De mannelijke en vrouwelijke voortplantingssystemen (kegels) bevinden zich op de punten van de verschillende takjes van dezelfde boom. De mannelijke kegels zijn afgerond en roodachtig of gelig van kleur, terwijl de vrouwelijke kegels zeer klein zijn en een groene of paarsige tint hebben. Ze worden doorgaans aangeduid als levensboom of thuja. Diverse soorten zijn algemeen bekend als ceder (Cedrus) maar zijn dat feitelijk niet.
