Bentham & Hooker system

From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
Jump to: navigation, search

An early taxonomic system, the Bentham & Hooker system for seed plants was published in :

G. Bentham & J.D. Hooker (three volumes, 1862–1883). Genera plantarum ad exemplaria imprimis in herbariis kewensibus servata definita.  (available online at Gallica and the Biodiversity Heritage Library).

Summary[edit]

The system recognises the following main groups:

  • DICOTYLEDONUM POLYPETALARUM vol I
    Series 1. THALAMIFLORÆ
    Series 2. DISCIFLORÆ
    Series 3. CALYCIFLORÆ
  • DICOTYLEDONES GAMOPETALÆ vol II
    Series 1. INFERÆ
    Series 2. HETEROMERÆ
    Series 3. BICARPELLATÆ
  • DICOTYLEDONES MONOCHLAMIDEÆ vol III
  • GYMNOSPERMEÆ vol III (1)
  • MONOCOTYLEDONES vol III (2)

Families and orders in the Bentham & Hooker system[edit]

Note that this system was published well before there were internationally accepted rules for botanical nomenclature. It indicates a family by "ordo"; an order is indicated by "cohors" (in the first two volumes) or "series" (in the third volume); in the first two volumes “series” refers to a rank above that of order. Terminations for families are not what they are now. Neither of these phenomena is a problem from a nomenclatural perspective: the ICBN provides for this.
