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.
Showing Pinus sabiniana
Etymology: "Mr Douglas has named the species in compliment to his early friend and patron Mr. Sabine, the late zealous Secretary of the Horticultural Society..."
Comment: The new name and description are clearly attributed to D.Douglas in the text and thus he is here considered to be the author of this name (ICN Art. 46.3, Melbourne Code, 2012). The spelling of the specific epithet is derived from the Latin "Sabinus" and is not to be altered to "sabineus" under ICN Art. 60.11 (Melbourne Code, 2012).
