Some Comments on the New Check List and Other Things Nomenclatural
Abstract:A proposed revision of the Forest Service "check list" provides the occasion for this lively article on problems in plant nomenclature. The author believes that strict adherence to the international rules at times promotes rather than avoids confusion, and urges the retention of scientific names that have long been in general use such as Acer saccharum, Sequoia gigantea, and Abies nobilis.
