    Acer is the Latin name for this genus. Eastern Asia is rich with about 100 species of this genus. There are 11 species in North America and several in Europe, western Asia, and far northern Africa. Most are trees but some are shrubs. The leaves are opposite and deciduous, though there is one evergreen species in Asia Minor. They bear winged seeds normally in pairs called samaras.
