Book cover

[Transcriber's Note:

This text is intended for readers who cannot use the "real" (unicode, UTF 8) version. The author used four common astronomical symbols, here replaced by names in brackets and accompanied by their meaning as given in the author's introduction:

[Saturn] Fruiting [Jupiter] Perennial [Mars] Biannual [Sun] Annual

The symbol [Venus] was used in a few species names; it has been replaced by the word "Veneris" (always in that form).

[] ("dagger") plants known only from imperfect specimens

[oe] "oe" ligature (generally not used in names) [alpha], [beta], [gamma] ... single Greek letters

In the original text, species and subspecies names were printed as sidenotes next to the first line of body text. In this e text they are shown in brackets on a separate line:

[ Species. ] (italicized) [Subspecies.] (not italicized)

The body text begins with a numeral (for species) or Greek letter (for subspecies).

All asterisks and question marks are in the original text.

A number of typographical errors were corrected. Details are listed at the end of the text.]
