    The tropical, subtropical and some temperate regions of the world are home to large components of the known global flora. However, the herbaria in these countries, often classified as so-called emerging economies, hold a ...
  • Smith, G.F. (Gideon Francois), 1959-; Figueiredo, Estrela; Moore, Gerry (International Association for Plant Taxonomy, 2011-02)
    We maintain that a review of the way in which votes that can be cast to influence the amendment of the International Code of Botanical Nomenclature (ICBN) are allocated is overdue. Although there will no doubt be resistance ...
  • Figueiredo, Estrela; Smith, G.F. (Gideon Francois), 1959- (British Cactus and Succulent Society, 2011)
    Since the name Aloe thompsoniae Groenew. was published in the mid-1930s, doubt has existed about whom it was named for. We determine that the specific epithet commemorates (Mrs) Edith Awdry (‘Googoo’) Thompson ...
