Documentation on the Collections

It is hoped that the collections of plants represented in the Botanical Garden will serve as reference material for many works and studies and for species recognition. For this reason, it is very important to compile full documentation on all the specimens that form the collections.

Botanical gardens provide the basic information for identifying plants in the form of labels. This information includes:

  • THE FAMILY: species belongs to
  • THE SCIENTIFIC NAME: universal binomial nomenclature -in Latin- to denominate the alive beings formed by a generic name (the same one for all the ejusdem generis organisms) and for a specific name (characteristic of the species)
  • THE COMMON NAME: in the languages considered appropriate
