The final section provides a detailed guide to websites and published resources useful to people using plant names." "The book incorporates the latest information in the most recently published Botanical and Cultivated Plant Codes, both of which are technical scientific publications that are difficult to read for all but the most dedicated botanists and horticulturists. Plant Names offers the professional horticulturist and hobby gardener alike an invaluable guide to using the multitude of names, including marketing names, on plant labels. From botanists to publishers, professional horticulturists, nurserymen, hobby gardeners and anyone interested in plant names, this book is an invaluable guide to using the potentially confusing array of scientific, commercial and common names."--BOOK JACKET." ;
