The Nomenclature Committee provides a forum to resolve matters relating to the scientific and common names of plants that are important both as intended and unintended components of commercial seed. Decisions regarding the proper spelling, application, authorship and taxonomic classification of names for crops and weeds are reflected in outputs such as the ISTA List of Stabilized Plant Names and the Multilingual Glossary of Common Plant Names, both of which are results of Committee activity. The currently available edition of the Stabilized List was completed in 2013; a new edition is due for completion in 2019.

Note:
Public access to the GRIN database, which previously hosted the Multilingual Glossary of Common Names for crop plants, has been temporarily suspended, as modifications are being made.
