International Plant Names Index
The INTERNATIONAL PLANT NAMES INDEX (IPNI) describes itself as "a database of the names and associated basic bibliographical details of seed plants , ferns and lycophytes ." Coverage of plant names is best at the rank of species and genus . It includes basic bibliographical details, associated with the names, and its goals include eliminating the need for repeated reference to primary sources for basic bibliographic information about plant names. The IPNI also maintains a list of standardized author abbreviations . These were initially based on Brummitt -webkit-column-width: 27em; column-width: 27em; list-style-type: decimal;"> * ^ "Ipni.org Site Info". Alexa Internet

Botanical Name
A BOTANICAL NAME is a formal scientific name conforming to the International Code of Nomenclature for algae, fungi, and plants (ICN) and, if it concerns a plant cultigen , the additional cultivar or Group epithets must conform to the International Code of Nomenclature for Cultivated Plants (ICNCP). The code of nomenclature covers "all organisms traditionally treated as algae, fungi , or plants, whether fossil or non-fossil, including blue-green algae ( Cyanobacteria ), chytrids , oomycetes , slime moulds and photosynthetic protists with their taxonomically related non-photosynthetic groups (but excluding Microsporidia )." The purpose of a formal name is to have a single name that is accepted and used worldwide for a particular plant or plant group

International Standard Name Identifier
The INTERNATIONAL STANDARD NAME IDENTIFIER (ISNI) is an identifier for uniquely identifying the public identities of contributors to media content such as books, television programmes, and newspaper articles. Such an identifier consists of 16 digits. It can optionally be displayed as divided into four blocks. It was developed under the auspices of the International Organization for Standardization (ISO) as Draft International Standard 27729; the valid standard was published on 15 March 2012. The ISO technical committee 46, subcommittee 9 ( TC 46/SC 9 ) is responsible for the development of the standard. ISNI can be used to disambiguate names that might otherwise be confused, and links the data about names that are collected and used in all sectors of the media industries

Author Citation (botany)
In botanical nomenclature , AUTHOR CITATION refers to citing the person or group of people who validly published a botanical name , i.e. who first published the name while fulfilling the formal requirements as specified by the International Code of Nomenclature for algae, fungi, and plants (ICN). In cases where a species is no longer in its original generic placement (i.e. a new combination of genus and specific epithet), both the author(s) of the original genus placement and those of the new combination are given (the former in parentheses). In botany , it is customary (though not obligatory) to abbreviate author names according to a recognised list of standard abbreviations . There are differences between the botanical code and the normal practice in zoology . In zoology, the publication year is given following the author name(s) and the authorship of a new combination is normally omitted

Plant Taxonomy
PLANT TAXONOMY is the science that finds, identifies, describes, classifies, and names plants . Thus making it one of the main branches of taxonomy (the science that finds, describes, classifies, and names living things). Plant
Plant
taxonomy is closely allied to plant systematics , and there is no sharp boundary between the two. In practice, " Plant
Plant
systematics" involves relationships between plants and their evolution, especially at the higher levels, whereas "plant taxonomy" deals with the actual handling of plant specimens . The precise relationship between taxonomy and systematics, however, has changed along with the goals and methods employed. Plant
Plant
taxonomy is well known for being turbulent, and traditionally not having any close agreement on circumscription and placement of taxa . See the list of systems of plant taxonomy

List Of Botanists By Author Abbreviation (A)
This is an incomplete list of botanists by their author abbreviation , which is designed for citation with the botanical names or works that they have published. This list follows that established by Brummitt "> Order Of EntriesThe list here is maintained strictly in order of the alphabetic characters in the abbreviation; thus "A.B.Jacks." appears under "A" not "J", and is located as if the characters were "ABJACKS". Capitalization is ignored as are all non-alphabetic characters such as "." and a space. Diacritical marks are also ignored, so that, e.g., "ü" is treated as if it were "u". NavigationBecause of its length, the list is split across separate pages. All alphabetic sections can be accessed from the short table of contents; the vertical bars show the page divisions. Searching will only find an entry within a page

Purple False Brome
BRACHYPODIUM DISTACHYON, commonly called PURPLE FALSE BROME or STIFF BROME, is a grass species native to southern Europe , northern Africa and southwestern Asia east to India . It is related to the major cereal grain species wheat , barley , oats , maize , rice , rye , sorghum , and millet . It has many qualities that make it an excellent model organism for functional genomics research in temperate grasses , cereals , and dedicated biofuel crops such as switchgrass . These attributes include small genome (~270 Mbp) diploid accessions, a series of polyploid accessions, a small physical stature, self-fertility, a short lifecycle, simple growth requirements, and an efficient transformation system. The genome of Brachypodium distachyon (diploid inbred line Bd21) has been sequenced and published in Nature in 2010
