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: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.
