This book presents the origin of common and botanical names of the best known plants in our regions. The plants are classified into six categories to make them easier to find: wild plants, vegetables, condiments, fruit, ornamental plants and other plants with miscellaneous uses. A short bibliography is followed by a general index from which you can quickly move to the article describing the origin of the name sought.
