  1. NomenclatureScientific Plant Classification Early Classification Started by the Greek philosopher Theophrastus Classified all plants into annuals, biennials, and perennials, according to life span Herbs, shrubs, and trees, according to their growth habit Modern Taxonomy Modern classification of plants is based on Linnaeus(Carl von Lenné), a 18th century Swedish physician and “the father of taxonomy” who revolutionized the field of plant and animal classification Use of binomial nomenclature - Genus and species for scientific names Use of trinomial nomenclature for horticultural crops Genus, species, and cultivar for cultivated crops

  2. Scientific NamesRed Delicious Apple ClassificationRed Delicious Apple KingdomPlantae Division Anthrophyta Class Dicotyledonae Order Rosales Family Rosaceae Genus Malus (or Malus) Species domestica (or domestica) Variety (naturally occurring) (cultivar) ‘Red Delicious’ Form -- Individual --

  3. Botanical Names for Horticultural Crops • Mostly deals with family, genus, species, and cultivar • Binomial for botanical names • Italicize or underline genus and species • Genus species (or Genusspecies) • Do not underline or italicize family and cultivar names • Rosaceae (the rose family) • Malus domestica cv. Golden Delicious • Variety names may be underlined or italicized • Piceaglauca var. densata Black Hills Spruce • Picea pungens cv. Hoopsii Hoops Blue Spruce

  4. Blue Spruce • Natural botanical varieties are seed propagated • Cultivars are propagated asexually by cuttings or grafting Picea pungens cv.Hoopsii Picea pungens var. glauca

  5. Red Delicious or Golden Delicious Apples Malusdomestica cv. Red Delicious Malusdomestica cv. Red Delicious Malusdomestica ‘Red Delicious’ Malusdomestica ‘Red Delicious’ Malusdomestica cv. Golden Delicious Malusdomestica cv. Golden Delicious Malusdomestica ‘Golden Delicious’ Malusdomestica ‘Golden Delicious’ Golden Delicious was a sport of Red Delicious

  6. Selected Terminology • Variety – A group of variants within a species which have similar characteristics • Cultivar – Cultivated variety, usually human-made Cultigen – A cultivar that has naturalized in a native stand • Ecospecies – A subdivision of species that are formed by ecological barrier (i.e., Cercis canadendensis, Redbud) • Clone – A group of plants all of which arose from a single individual (ortet) through asexual (vegetative) propagation • Clonal Cultivar – An asexually propagated clone (i.e., Russet Burbank potato, Royalty rose, etc.) • Pure Lines – Homozygous inbred lines grown from seed AAbbcc, aabbcc, aaBBcc, aabbCC • Hybrid Cultivar – A cultivar developed by hybridizing (crossing) two or more genetically diverse parental lines Genetically heterozygous, phenotypically uniform (homogeneous) AaBbCc (A=dominat allele, a=recessive allele)

  7. Ecospecies of Redbud • Formed by ecological isolation • Clines with continuous variation in leaf pubescence from east to west Redbud

  8. Some Horticulturally Important Families • Rosaceae Rose Family • Solanaceae Nightshade Family • Cucurbitaceae Gourd Family • Brassicaceae Mustard Family • Apiaceae Celery Family • Liliaceae Lily Family • Orchidaceae Orchid Family

  9.
