Hunt Institute for Botanical Documentation


19(1) Huntia published

21 April 2022

In this issue Ivan Hoste sets the stage with François Crépin's impassioned plea for the rights of the original author of a species and then takes us to the 1867 International Botanical Congress in Paris where phytographers and systematists face off over author citations. Michael Calonje, Alan W. Meerow and Javier Francisco-Ortega document the magnificent cycads David Fairchild encountered during his travels and establish their current status. R. B. Williams explores the publishing history of William Allport Leighton's A Flora of Shropshire, dating the parts and consolidated volume, adding a bibliographical description and giving a scientific appraisal. If you're ready to take us on a new adventure in the pages of our journal of botanical history, check out the topics and submission guidelines available on the Huntia page.
