Title:
International Uniformity of Plant Names

Author:

pp: 483

Abstract:
INTRODUCTION

The intensification of the international trade in nursery products underlines the need for uniformity in the naming of cultivated plants. The new editions of the international List of Names of Perennials and List of Names of Woody Plants together form a huge step in the right direction. The prime aim of both books is to achieve worldwide uniformity in the nomenclature of these plants. Every 5 years new editions will occur.

  • List of Names of Woody Plants (green book) contain the preferred botanical names and most used synonyms of over 17,000 woody nursery plants.
  • List of Names of Perennials (yellow book) contain the preferred botanical names and most used synonyms of over 14,000 perennials.
  • The above two books provide the preferred botanical names and most used synonyms and trademarks.

It is most gratifying that both these reference works have been recognised by the ENA (European Nursery Association) as the European standard works on the nomenclature of nursery plants
