Correspondence and Comments Subsequent to Initial Analysis
Correspondence 1 25 Nov 2009 e-mail from Jeff Greenhouse see Comment 1
Editorial Comments 1 Correspondence 1 indicates that Hordeum marinum ssp. gussoneanum (Parl.) Thell. (Vierteljahrsschrift der Naturforschenden Gesellschaft in Zürich 52:441. 1908) was based on Hordeum gussoneanum Parl. (Flora Palermitana 1:246. 1845) which was named for Gussone [evidently meaning Giovanni Gussone (1787-1866), as indicated under Comments]. [Therefore, spelling of epithet correct as indicated in this Index, 17 Dec 2010.]
