I love binomial nomenclature, except when "they mess with it."
Is there a way to keep up with all of this sudden renaming of plants lately? Or is it just me noticing it more? What is the practical difference between ICBN and ICZN? Who decides what the official names are? Who decides to change the names? I thought a lot of the latin plant names were arbitrary anyway, depending upon the mood of Linnaeus that day. Or is that just the species names that are arbitrary? Who cares if some scientist discovers something new about a plant's genetics? I don't think that's a good reason to change the names. If it is, please tell me why it's important enough to cause all this confusion.
