Australian Plant Name Index (APNI)
The Australian Plant Name Index (APNI) is a tool for the botanical community that deals with plant names and their usage in the scientific literature, whether as a current name or synonym. APNI does not recommend any particular taxonomy or nomenclature. For a listing of currently accepted scientific names for the Australian vascular flora, please use the Australian Plant Census (APC) link above.
Comment:nom. et orth. cons. vs CANAVALI Adanson (1763) (nom. rej.) (ref. I.C.B.N. (1983) No. 3891). Orthography corrected by A.P. de Candolle, Prodr. 2 (mid Nov. 1825) 403 which is the reference given for the conservation of the genus in the I.C.B.N. – however, although de Candolle's orthography is conserved, the name should be given without change of author i.e. Adanson. See, however, the paper by P.G.Parkinson, Taxon 36 (1987) 81–83 where it is stated that Adanson's names are invalid as he followed a mononomial form of nomenclature, and that consequently conservation is unnecessary.
