Number (ISBN) is a unique[a][b] numeric commercial book identifier. Publishers purchase ISBNs from an affiliate of the International ISBN Agency.[1] An ISBN is assigned to each edition and variation (except reprintings) of a book. For example, an e-book, a paperback and a hardcover edition of the same book would each have a different ISBN. The ISBN is 13 digits long if assigned on or after 1 January 2007, and 10 digits long if assigned before 2007

Genus
A genus (/ˈdʒiːnəs/, pl. genera /ˈdʒɛnərə/) is a taxonomic rank used in the biological classification of living and fossil organisms in biology. In the hierarchy of biological classification, genus comes above species and below family. In binomial nomenclature, the genus name forms the first part of the binomial species name for each species within the genus.E.g. Felis catus
Felis catus
and Felis silvestris
Felis silvestris
are two species within the genus Felis. Felis
Felis
is a genus within the family Felidae.The composition of a genus is determined by a taxonomist. The standards for genus classification are not strictly codified, so different authorities often produce different classifications for genera

Lagenaria
Lagenaria
Lagenaria
is a genus of gourd-bearing vines in the squash family (Cucurbitaceae). Lagenaria
Lagenaria
contains six species, all of which are indigenous to tropical Africa.[1] The best-known species, the bottle gourd, L. siceraria, has been domesticated by humans, and has spread beyond Africa. The other species are not cultivated.[1] The gourds of the various species may be harvested young and used as a vegetable. More commonly, the gourds are harvested mature, then dried, and used in making utensils (including musical instruments and containers). Gourds of L. siceraria have been used to store water and other liquids since ancient times

Cultivar
The term cultivar[nb 1] most commonly refers to an assemblage of plants selected for desirable characters that are maintained during propagation. More generally, cultivar refers to the most basic classification category of cultivated plants in the International Code of Nomenclature for Cultivated Plants (ICNCP). Most cultivars arose in cultivation, but a few are special selections from the wild. Popular ornamental garden plants like roses, camellias, daffodils, rhododendrons, and azaleas are cultivars produced by careful breeding and selection for floral colour and form. Similarly, the world's agricultural food crops are almost exclusively cultivars that have been selected for characters such as improved yield, flavour, and resistance to disease, and very few wild plants are now used as food sources

Cucurbita Ficifolia
Cucurbita
Cucurbita
ficifolia is a species of squash, grown for its edible seeds, fruit, and greens.[2] It has many common names in English such as the fig-leaf gourd, Malabar gourd, black seed squash, and cidra. Although it is closely related to other squashes in its genus, such as the pumpkin, it shows considerable biochemical difference from them and does not hybridize readily with them.Contents1 Common names in English 2 Common names in other languages 3 Description 4 Origin and distribution 5 Cultivation 6 Uses 7 References 8 External linksCommon names in English[ed

Cucurbita Andreana
Cucurbita
Cucurbita
andreana is a plant species of the genus Cucurbita,[1][2] since 1982 in the rank of a C. maxima subspecies, C. maxima subsp. andreana, the wild relative of C. maxima subsp. maxima cultivated subspecies. It is native to Argentina
Argentina
and Uruguay. C. andreana fruits are smaller and not palatable, those of C. maxima (or C. maxima subsp. maxima) are bigger and palatable.[2] The species Cucurbita
Cucurbita
maxima originated in South America from wild C. andreana over 4,000 years ago.[3] The two species hybridize quite readily but have noticeably different calcium levels.[4] C. andreana has yellow flowers and bright green striped fruit. It prefers full sun and well drained soil. Extrafloral nectaries are present in C. maxima but not necessarily in C

Cucurbita Californica
Cucurbita
Cucurbita
californica is a species of flowering plant in the squash family.[1] The species was first identified by Sereno Watson
Sereno Watson
in 1876.[1] There is disagreement about whether this is a separate species from Cucurbita palmata.[2][3] In 1883 botanist C. C. Parry reported it was distinguishable from C. palmata by its smaller fruit and foliage, and fruit that is a dull green with thin ridges.[4] It is similar to Cucurbita
Cucurbita
cordata, Cucurbita
Cucurbita
cylindrata, Cucurbita
Cucurbita
digitata, and Cucurbita
