Correspondence and Comments Subsequent to Initial Analysis
Correspondence 1 30 Jun 2008 e-mail from Jeff Greenhouse see Comment 1
Editorial Comments 1 Correspondence 1 indicates: that the Medicago minima citation of (L.) L. (Flora Anglica 21. 1754) is noted on International Plant Names Index as invalid, "combination not made at species rank"; that this was explained by Shinners (Rhodora 58:3--4. 1956) as the result of a failure to indent the epithet, a printing error, and that Shinners goes on to verify that the IPNI and TROPICOS citations of (L.) Bartal. (Catalogo delle piante che nascono spontaneamente intorno alla citta' di Siena 60--61. 1776) are correct; and that since these very early works are not readily available for study, it is appropriate to rely on the secondary sources and accept (L.) Bartal. as the best citation. [Therefore, author citation accepted as corrected in this Index, 23 Jul 2008.]
