first_imgWith spring just around the corner, soon everyone will be buying plants for their landscapes and gardens. But if you don’t know the plant’s botanical name, you may wind up buying the wrong plant. The common names we most often call plants can cause confusion. Sometimes two or more plants share the same name. Or one plant may be known by many names, depending on local and family traditions. You can now get a beautiful yaupon holly, for instance, that has yellow berries. But if you want the yellow-berry form, you have to ask for it specifically. Another classic example is European water lily, which has more than 300 common names in many languages. It’s the same plant everywhere. But it has a confusing array of common names. In the “International Code of Botanical Nomenclature,” though, the plant has only one name. Knowing the botanical name when you go to buy a plant cuts through all the confusion. Each form of each plant has just one botanical name, wherever you are in the world. The two-name botanical code was developed in the 1700s. Each plant is given a first and last name, based in Latin, that’s unique to each species. Learning these Latin names doesn’t mean learning every plant in the world, though. But it helps to know how they’re named. Botanical families share traits such as foliage and flower form. Members of the carrot family, for instance, bear flowers in umbrella-like clusters and have oil glands in the foliage. The family includes carrot, Queen Anne’s lace, parsley, coriander, cumin, celery and parsnip. These plants’ botanical first names are a little like people’s last names: they identify groups of plants with even more similar characteristics. The first name of a botanical binomial is the genus name. The genus and species names are always either underlined or in italics. Within the rose family for example, are Prunus (the group of plants we commonly call stone fruits), Malus (apples and crabapples), Rubus (bramble-type berries) and Rosa (the garden roses). The second name is the species name. This narrows down the identity to a specific species. For example, the common name maple refers to a genus of plants known botanically as Acer. The sugar maple is a species of Acer known botanically as saccharum. So the botanical name for sugar maple is Acer saccharum. No matter what the common names in Germany, France, Russia or China, Acer saccharum is the plant we call sugar maple in the United States. Sometimes unique growing conditions produce a variant from a species that then reproduces itself. For instance, peach (Prunus persica) trees produce a fruit with fuzzy skin. At some point, though, this species produced a few offspring trees whose fruit had smooth skin. Botanists call this a “variety” of the normal species. This smooth-skinned peach is commonly called a nectarine. But botanically, it’s known as Prunus persica variety nucipersica. “Variety” is often abbreviated as “v.” Often new variations of horticultural species are produced by cultivation techniques, hybridization or even encouragement of mutations. These are called cultivars, or cultivated varieties. For example, the botanical name for a “Patio” tomato is Lycopersicon esculentum ‘Patio.’ It seems a bit daunting to pronounce these names. But at least know how to find a reference to them. If you admire a plant you just have to have for your garden, knowing the botanical name is the only sure way to find it in the marketplace.last_img read more

first_img Criminal Justice Reform,  Press Release,  Public Safety,  Results Harrisburg, PA – Governor Tom Wolf and Attorney General Josh Shapiro, along with members of the governor’s cabinet and legislators, today announced the launch of the Pennsylvania Reentry Council (PRC), created to educate the public, members of law enforcement and criminal justice, and policymakers on why supporting prisoner reentry efforts is essential to reducing crime and violence. The council will provide a forum for the sharing of best practices on reentry and will help to identify barriers to successful reentry for persons with criminal records.“In Pennsylvania, 90 percent of the prison population will return to their community,” Governor Wolf said. “And if we are not successful at getting them the services they need to make it home, then all of our work, all the rehabilitative programming, all the money we’ve spent to get them ready to return home is rendered useless. Pennsylvania has had a large but fragmented network of reentry services, but today with the announcement of the Reentry Council, we can unite the state’s multiple reentry partners into one statewide reentry council.”“For too long, we’ve relied solely on incarceration to prevent crime and violence,” said Attorney General Josh Shapiro. “By working collaboratively with law enforcement, state and local government and communities, we can create new strategies to expand opportunities and assist returning citizens as they reenter their communities, and make our commonwealth safer as a result.”The Department of Correction (DOC), the Pennsylvania Board of Probation and Parole (PBPP), the Pennsylvania Commission on Crime and Delinquency (PCCD), 21 regional reentry coalitions, and numerous reentry services providers work regularly to improve the outcomes of reentrants and increase public safety—but often in silos and without clear direction.Members of these state agencies and the departments of Human Services, Labor & Industry, Education, and Transportation, the Pennsylvania State Police, the Office of Victim Advocate, and the existing 21 regional coalitions will be part of the new PRC, which will be the center of reentry efforts for the commonwealth to establish common goals, promote evidence-based practices, and encourage collaboration and coordination across all stakeholder groups. PRC will build on the individual successes of reentry organizations and identify and eliminate weaknesses.The PRC will work to promote collaboration between federal, state, local, and community reentry stakeholders and identify and implement successful evidence-based reentry programs.“The reentry process begins upon an individual’s admission into the correctional system and continues through release and into their community,” Governor Wolf said. “To continue Pennsylvania’s historic inmate reduction – over 2,000 individuals since January 2015 – we must expand reentry services and build on the good work already being done by stakeholders. The new Reentry Council will do just that.”“One of the most impactful ways to lower our recidivism rate is meaningful re-integrative services and removing the barriers to re-integration,” Representative Jordan Harris said on behalf of the Pennsylvania Legislative Black Caucus. “We applaud the governor and the Attorney General for their foresight to establish this council and look forward to working with the council for the betterment of our commonwealth.”At the state level the Wolf Administration continues to implement policies and expand services to improve reentry, reduce recidivism, and increase public safety. Among those efforts, Governor Wolf introduced a ‘Ban the Box’ Fair-Chance hiring policy for state agencies that will remove the criminal conviction question from both civil and non-civil service employment applications for agencies under the governor’s jurisdiction. Ban the Box allows for reentry services in Pennsylvania to work by providing applicants a fair chance to be judged on their qualifications, not their criminal history.Also, Governor Wolf signed Act 5 of 2016 into law, which removes barriers to employment by sealing minor criminal records for those who have been crime-free for 10 years. Farther reaching ‘clean slate’ legislation is anticipated later this year to provide for “automatic” sealing of non-violent misdemeanor records after 10 years.Following the press conference, the first meeting of the Reentry Council was held at the Attorney General’s Office.
