What attention does this article need? Looks OK to me. RJFJR (talk) 04:44, 2 June 2013 (UTC)

No more attention needed than for 1000s of other articles. It could use more inline citations though. Removed attention needed tag. Plantdrew (talk) 00:39, 28 October 2014 (UTC)

Associated forest cover[edit]

I tried to clean up that monstrosity with some column templates so it's not so long vertically. I don't personally understand the organization whoever wrote it was going for, so feel free to correct my section breaks. Also, whoever wrote it gave up linking the species and writing the full common names about halfway through, so that should be cleaned up. Also, should that be moved to a separate article? It's pretty bulky for this.Wasp32 (talk) 01:12, 27 June 2016 (UTC)

Contradiction in genetics[edit]

The mockernut is a 64 chromosome species and therefore very rarely if ever crosses with 32 chromosome species such as pecan or shellbark hickory. There is no published information concerning population or other genetic studies of this species.
Hickories are noted for their variability, and many natural hybrids are known among North American species. Hickories usually can be crossed successfully within the genus. Geneticists recognize that mockernut hickory hybridizes naturally with: C. illinoensis (Carya x schneckii Sarg.) and C. ovata (Carya x collina Laughlin).

Maybe I'm misunderstanding but this seems to be saying that it rarely hybridized with pecan but it also naturally hybridizes. I don't know enough about genetics to correct this.Wasp32 (talk) 01:17, 27 June 2016 (UTC)
