Correspondence and Comments Subsequent to Initial Analysis
Correspondence 1 25 Mar 2008 e-mail from Jeff Greenhouse see Comment 1
Editorial Comments 1 Correspondence 1 indicates: that there have been two schools of thought concerning the proper author citations for Fragaria chiloensis and Fragaria virginiana; that Antoine Nicolas Duchesne (Duchesne in Authors of Plant Names), in Histoire naturelle des fraisiers 165--166 (1766), published the binomials Fragaria chiloensis and Fragaria virginiana, referring to them as races of a single species, Fragaria vesca L.; that some have considered these binomials to have been validly published species names, Fragaria chiloensis (L.) Duchesne (based on Fragaria vesca var. chiloensis L.) and Fragaria virginiana Duchesne; that, however, the current consensus (see International Plant Names Index entries for the Duchesne names) is that Duchesne's binomials weren't validly published species names because he didn't accept them as species as required by ICBN 2006, Art. 34.1(a).; that Fragaria chiloensis was validated by Philip Miller (Mill. in Authors of Plant Names) in Gardener's Dictionary, ed. 8: Fragaria no. 4 (1768), based on Fragaria vesca var. chiloensis L. (Species Plantarum 1: 495. 1753), so that the correct citation is Fragaria chiloensis (L.) Mill.; and that Fragaria virginiana was validated by Mill. (Gardener's Dictionary, ed. 8: Fragaria no. 2. 1768), so that the correct citation in this case is Fragaria virginiana Mill.. [Therefore, author citation corrected to Fragaria virginiana Mill., from Fragaria virginiana Duchesne previously in this Index, 25 Mar 2008.]
