Correspondence and Comments Subsequent to Initial Analysis
Correspondence 1 18 Aug 2008 e-mail from Jeff Greenhouse see Comment 1
Editorial Comments 1 Correspondence 1 indicates that Descurainia sophia was published in Engler & Prantl, Die Natürlichen Pflanzenfamilien 3(2):192 (1891), for which the author of Cruciferae was Prantl, who ascribed the name [but not the description] to Webb. [Therefore, author citation corrected to Descurainia sophia (L.) Webb ex Prantl, from Descurainia sophia (L.) Webb previously in this Index, 11 Sep 2008.]
