Disambiguation link notification for July 9[edit]

Hi. Thank you for your recent edits. Wikipedia appreciates your help. We noticed though that when you edited List of botany journals, you added a link pointing to the disambiguation page Springer. Such links are almost always unintended, since a disambiguation page is merely a list of "Did you mean..." article titles. Read the FAQ • Join us at the DPL WikiProject.

Corn poppy distribution[edit]

Hi. I'm writing about your reversion of my recent edit to the distribution of the Papaver rhoeas article with your comment 'It is native to Europe, widely naturalized outside Europe'. Both statements are technically correct - it is native to Europe, and it is widely naturalised elsewhere. And I see that you are a botanist. However you did not deal with the matter raised in my editing comment 'implies it is not native elsewhere'. Its distribution in western Asia and north Africa is not due to introduction, it is native there as well as in Europe. The wider distribution is given later in the article, and in one of the three references present in the article when you made the alteration, the Flora of Malta. It is given in the majority of sources elsewhere, e.g. I see it in print in my copy of the European Garden Flora, and on the web on the Kew website. Hence the statement that you returned is both redundant and conflicts with the distribution given later and the sources quoted in this document, and thus is misleading in its own right. If you have evidence that it is only native to Europe, that should be added with references to the article, but not in the lead, as it is now contentious. Thanks.
