About this book

The book is a plain English guide to the use of plant names and the conventions for writing them as governed by the International Code of Botanical Nomenclature and the International Code of Nomenclature for Cultivated Plants. It covers the naming of wild plants, plants modified by humans, why plant names change, their pronunciation and hints to help remember them. The final section provides a detailed guide to websites and published resources.

Plant Names incorporates the latest information and research in the recently published Botanical and Cultivated Plant codes in an easy to read format, and offers a definitive guide to using the myriad names, including marketing names, on plant labels.
