Question

A scientist has come across a plant, which he feels is a new species. How will he go about its identification, classification and nomenclature?


Solution

Newly discovered plant can be identified with the help of taxonomic keys, herbaria, monographs and preserved plant specimen.

The scientist has to study the morphological and anatomical characters of the plants/plant parts, compare the characteristic features with the similar information available in the scientific literature and after that he can decide the exact systematic position of the plant, name it according to the rules of binomial nomenclature and fix it's systemic position.
