The Maple Family has about 125 species of trees and
shrubs. The leaves are
deciduous and arranged in opposite pairs. Most
species have simple
(undivided) leaves which are palmately lobed. Fruits
of maples are known as
samaras and they consist of a pair of winged seeds
which twirl in the wind
as they become dispersed.
