Excerpt from Dictionary of Botanical Equivalents: French-English, German-English Readers of foreign botanical literature have for a long time felt the need of an accurate translation of technical terms which are not commonly found in our dictionaries. In the following compilation the editors have attempted to supply this need. The foundation of the work rests on Schneider's Illustriertes Handworterbuch der Botanik. Many terms, however, have been taken from other dictionaries, as well as textbooks and current literature. French and German terms of Latin or Greek origin have been omitted whenever the English equivalent would practically have been only a repetition. For such terms as are included in this dictionary the exact English equivalents have been sought. In numerous instances, however, the lack of such has made it necessary to furnish an explanation of the foreign term rather than a translation. The list of plant names includes important economic plants, farm weeds, and the Latin equivalents for the larger plant groups.
