I see that Woz stuck to her guns on the note pages change. One page is going to be mighty difficult to fit all the ID info.

Is it? At SOSI they said they started with allowing a binder, like physics events, and then went to 5 pages, and now are down to 1.

I would put general oak info, since apparently there are about 600 species. The tests would probably ask you to identify that something is some type of oak, not the specific species. The questions will probably be general as well. (Or should be)

The entire Quercus genus has similar characteristics, so an overview covering the general info would suffice

My reading of the rules is that ES are supposed to ask about ID and toxic effects, which should narrow it down a bit...
