El Verde Plant Name Codes

El Verde Plant Name Codes - Charlotte Taylor, May 1993


INDEX:
(TREES & SHRUBS, HERBS, GRASSES, FERNS, VINES & LIANAS)

These 6-letter codes are intended to standardize plant name codes currently in use, to replace previous official and unofficial codes, and to serve as a reference for current nomenclature of the El Verde flora. Equivalent 2-letter codes (Odum & Pigeon, 1970) are indicated. Note that the 4-letter codes in informal use at El Verde have never been formally codified; for this reason they should be regarded with caution, because the same 4-letter code has been used for more than one species in several cases. Six letters are used here to accommodate future additions to the flora, and to facilitate learning or at least recognition of the complete plant names. Old codes that are superseded by this list are indicated in parentheses after the new code. Old scientific names that should be updated are indicated in parentheses after the current name.


Asterisks (*) indicate the most commonly encountered species.
