And another thing . . . 
I've had a conversation or two with colleagues who have indicated that we haven't see the last of Botanical Latin. This is because there are people who would rather die than write a diagnosis or description in English, particularly given the actions of the Melbourne Congress. 
There are now plenty of aids for composing Latin.  Those in countries that do not have English as official language can make their feelings known by using Latin.
