"The Names of Plants is an invaluable reference for botanists and horticulturists. 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 Code of Botanical Nomenclature and the International Code of Nomenclature for Cultivated Plants, this new edition contains a greatly expanded glossary, which includes the Greek, Latin or other source of each plant name."--BOOK JACKET.Gledhill, David is the author of 'Names of Plants', published 1985 under ISBN 9780521315623 and ISBN 052131562X.
