Synopsis: This book provides both a handy reference to the scientific names of plants and a clear written account of the ways in which the naming of plants has changed with time and why these changes were necessary. It deals with the problems of using common names of plants against the historical background of our increasing discrimination of kinds of plants. It then goes on to consider landmarks in the standardization of both common and 'scientific' names and the development of internationally agreed principles governing the formation and use of names in botany, sylviculture, agriculture and horticulture. From the alphabetical list the reader may interpret the scientific names of plants from any part of the world.
Book Description: The Names of Plants is a handy two-part reference for the botanist and amateur gardener. The first section describes how a confusion of common names became replaced by internationally agreed Latin names and outlines the rules to be followed when a new species of plant is named. The second section comprises a glossary of plant names from which the reader may interpret existing names and construct new names. The third edition has been updated to include recent additions to the rules for nomenclature and an expanded glossary.
