We Botanists had nothing before Brummitt and Powell (Authors of Plant Names)
but now we have a resource, including individual designations for over 90
"Smiths". Now it is on line. Nearly everyone I know agreed to disagree with
their choices, but followed this work because there was nothing else. And if
you don't like the abbreviations, it is always correct to include the full
name of the author(s).
Phil Jenkins (ARIZ).
