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.
Etymology:"...in accordance with Mr. Hill's desire as well as our own, we have have [sic] attached the name of the present enlightened Governor of Queensland (Sir George F. Bowen, G.C.M.G., Captain and Governor-in-Chief), to the genus, in recognition no less of that officer's position as Governor of the district of Australia, in which the plant was found, than of his liberal encouragement of botany, and of Mr. Hill's exertions in particular."
