What every chemist should know about plant names

NPR opens 2011 with a very interesting first issue in which a different and original viewpoint by Johannes Erkens is published:

‘In this Viewpoint, I explain why chemists should be aware of the essentials of plant naming, and describe some easy quality checks that can be performed to avoid errors being perpetuated’

This is what he says and that is exactly what he does.

You can read this article free to access until the end of January. Come on! Find out why chemists should know about plant names and comment on it.

    Dear NPR reader,

    hopefully you will find this viewpoint useful. As a biologist I always have to work myself through the chemical literature, which can be daring for a non-chemicaly trained biologists. I can imagine that reading taxonomic literature might give you the same feeling. I hope to contribute to easing the way for you and so making your excellent chemical research even more top-notch!
