Ginkgoaceae (from the genus Ginkgo, the Japanese name). Ginkgo Family. Fig. 4. Much-branched tree with deciduous leaves: secondary wood without true vessels; resin-tubes present: leaves alternate, fan-shaped like the pinnules of Adiantum; veins forking: anthers borne in pedicelled pairs on a slender axis, without bracts, the whole somewhat catkin-like: no true pistillate cone; ovules borne in pairs at the summit of branched peduncles, each ovule surrounded at the base by a fleshy ring: fruit drupaceous. Fertilization is by means of motile sperms.

A single genus of one species occurs in China and Japan. Fossil species are known. The family is distantly related to the Coniferae, but the peculiar foliage, as well as the absence of cone structure and the great reduction of sporophylls, is distinctive.

Ginkgo biloba (ginkgo, maidenhair tree, Kew tree), the only species, is grown as a park tree.CH
