Why do the Latin names of plants change? (short series of 2 talks) with Chris Metherell

Part 2

Many botanists find Latin names difficult to recall at the best of times.  When “experts” start monkeying around with them the situation gets even worse. And no-one ever seems to explain exactly why the changes are made and so the whole thing becomes inexplicable and irritating! This short series of two talks seeks to at least demystify the process by explaining how and more importantly why names change. I can’t promise to make the situation less annoying but at least you’ll know why it happens!
