Botanical Names Demystified

Meghan Ray

Do plant names ever seem intentionally obscure and hard to remember? Do you wonder how they got their names and why? This program will break down botanical nomenclature, looking at some of the most common Greek and Latin vocabulary and the rules for plant naming. We will also examine the ways that names reflect politics, patronage, and advances in the science of botany.
