Language: Bilingual in English and Dutch

Provides an overview of the nomenclature of more than 90,000 wild and domestic (garden) plants. The great variety of names is presented in a well-organised fashion, grouping together names, alternative spellings and synonyms. Dutch and English common names are also included. For each name, it is stated in which of the over 150 sources the name has been observed. In total, over 240,000 references are included. Various search and selection options offer assistance with finding the plants. For each plant, a single spelling is presented as the name, based on what in the Netherlands is the most common way of designating the plant. In addition, one or more synonyms and alternative spellings may be given. The result, in combination with the references to the sources, is an extensive overview of the current nomenclature of plants. While the CD is in Dutch, it is easy to navigate through the data bases. Latin is the universal language for naming organisms, so the inclusion of English common names makes this a useful reference for gardeners who want to name correctly most of the plants they are likely to encounter.
