  • Comment: The author asserts that the 1775 editions of the Forsters' Characteres Generum Plantarum are not effectively published and that effective publication occurred only with the 1776 quarto edition. Proposals to conserve genera and to suppress other editions are also mooted. The 1775 publication date is maintained here until the outcome of these proposals is known.
