This glossary is made up of 235 pages, with explanatory notes in English, French and German.
The glossary aims to assist seed traders, seed analysts and agricultural scientists in finding the correct corresponding scientific plant name of a seed sample, if only the common name is known or mentioned on labels and certificates or in correspondence and literature.
The glossary is arranged in three sections: In the first section, the scientific names, according to the ISTA Rules, are given in alphabetical order with the equivalent common names for each species, if available, in 61 countries. The second section is an alphabetical index of the common names with cross-references to the equivalent scientific names. A third section gives an alphabetical index of scientific synonyms.
