Abstract

PLANT names and the naming of plant specimens are of fundamental importance in the science of botany. In applied botany as well, proper identification is of the utmost importance. In agriculture for instance, accuracy in naming poisonous plants and weeds, as well as fodder and pasture species, can save farmers considerable sums of money, and may be responsible for avoiding heavy stock losses.
