    Etymology: [L., laurel.]

Freebase

  1. Laurus

    Laurus is a genus of evergreen trees belonging to the Laurel family, Lauraceae. The genus includes three or more species. Fossils dating from before the Pleistocene glaciations show that species of Laurus were formerly distributed more widely around the Mediterranean and North Africa, when the climate was more humid and mild than at present. It is currently thought that the drying of the Mediterranean basin during the glaciations caused Laurus to retreat to the mildest climate refuges, including southern Spain, Portugal and the Macaronesian islands. With the end of the last glacial period, L. nobilis recovered some of its former range around the Mediterranean.

U.S. National Library of Medicine
