Rapid publication in the mid-nineteenth century

John Lindley’s “New Plants” column in the Gardeners’ Chronicle

Research output: Contribution to journalArticle


John Lindley’s vehicle for very rapid publication was his “New Plants” column in the Gardeners’ Chronicle. Six inexplicably overlooked names published there are listed and disposed of, necessitating an overdue new combination in Gongora and adjustments in other tropical American Orchidaceae (Aspidogyne, Barkeria), though one name in Aphelandra (Acanthaceae) of Guatemala remains unplaced.
