NATAG decisions

Most of the editing of RHS Plant Finder is undertaken by the Royal Horticultural Society’s team of botanists but, particularly where changes may prove controversial, decisions are sometimes referred to the Nomenclature and Taxonomy Advisory Group (NATAG).

This is a committee of taxonomists including representatives from academia, cultivar registration and publishing who deliberate on potential taxonomic and nomenclatural questions, taking into consideration the particular needs of a primarily horticultural audience.

To help keep interested parties abreast of developments in nomenclature and taxonomy, the conclusions arrived at by NATAG can be read in the documents below.
