It should become a small but essential reference book to all users of Floras, including beginners in botany, whether students or amateurs. Intelligent, familiar, and confident use of the scientific names of plants is desirable in any serious work. This book will put it in the power of every reader, whether trained in Latin and Greek or not, to speak and write and understand the international names of British plants.}
