The systematic names of plants are accented as in the Hortus Britannicus. The derivations of the genera are given, and the specific systematic names literally translated, any explanatory words accompanying such translation being printed in Italic. Those names, whether of genera or species, which are commemorative, as Banksia in honour of Sir Joseph Banks, are distinguished by having the subjoined letters in Italic where the rest of the word is in Roman, and in Roman where the rest of the word is in Italic, as Banksia ; those which have been applied to plants by the classic writers of antiquity are distinguished by having the initial letter in Italic, as Þýrus, where the rest of the word is in Roman, and in Roman where the rest of the word is in Italic, as Pyrus. All words, generic or specific, of unknown derivation, or aboriginal names, are wholly in Italic or wholly in Roman, according to the letter in which the preceding or following matter may be printed, as Pædèira Lingun Boj., or Pædèria Língun Boj.
