Caption: Ginkgo tree. View of branches and leaves of a maidenhair tree (Ginkgo biloba) in autumn colours. This tree is the only living representative of the family Ginkgoaceae. The two-lobed leaf is unique among trees in having no midrib and having a branching fan of veins from the base of the leaf. The golden yellow colouration in autumn is due to the degradation of the chlorophyll present in the leaves. Ginkgo biloba has separate male and female plants. The tree was sacred in Ancient China, and has since been introduced around the world. Ginkgo extract is used in herbal medicine for many purposes, including to enhance memory.
