Modern Botanical Names

Dr. Alan Weakley's draft Flora of the Carolinas, Virginia, and Georgia, and Surrounding Areas was chosen as the basis for the modern names. The nomenclature followed by Dr. Weakley is a synthesis of hundreds of recent studies and thus can be considered an appropriate representation of our best classification at this point in time for species occurring in the area of coverage. (More on nomenclature.)
