Название: The names of plants
Автор: Gledhill D.
The Names of Plants is an invaluable reference for botanists and horticulturalists. The
first section gives an historical account of the significant changes in the ways by
which plants have been known and named. It documents the problems associated
with an ever-increasing number of common names of plants, and the resolution of
these problems through the introduction of International Codes for both botanical
and horticultural nomenclature. It also outlines the rules to be followed when
plant breeders name a new species or cultivar of plant.
The second section comprises a glossary of generic and specific plant names, and
components of these, from which the reader may interpret the existing names of
plants and construct new names. With explanations of the International Codes for
both Botanical Nomenclature and Nomenclature for Cultivated Plants, this new
edition contains a greatly expanded glossary, which includes the Greek, Latin, or
other source of each plant name.
