Excerpt from Rhodora, Vol. 1In such matters as nomenclature, punctuation, capitalization of scientific names, modes of bibliographical citation, etc., contributors will have full power to follow personal preferences, provided their usage is consistent with itself. The editors reserve, however, the right of adding parenthetical synonyms, if such are deemed necessary for ready intelligibility.The name Rhodora, although the designation of one of our most attractive New England plants, has been chosen, not from sentiment but primarily from a desire to have a distinctive and euphonious one-word title, experience having amply shown that similar titles (e.g. Linn?a, Grevillea, Helios, Erythea, Auk, Ibis, etc.) soon become familiar, and possess great merit in their brevity and ease of citation.For several years a Rattlesnake-Plantain, common in the White Mountains and other sections of New England, has passed as Goodyera Menziesii, a species previously considered typical of the Rocky Mountains and the northwestern Pacific slope, also by exception found on Lake Superior and in Lower Canada. This White Mountain plant was collected at Crawford's by Miss Minns, whose specimens were referred by Dr. Watson, in the sixth edition of Gray's Manual, to that northwestern species. Recently the plant of the White Mountains has been collected in various other parts of New England, even as far south as Connecticut, where it has passed for Goodyera repens. The Messrs. Faxon, and others active in the botanical exploration of the White Mountains, have pointed out, however, that this New England plant is really very different from the Goodyera Menziesii received from northwestern collectors. Much material has been accumulated, and a critical study has been made, with the hope of determining, if possible, the identity of this doubtful plant.True Goodyera Menziesii is a well-understood species, northwestern specimens having been kindly examined by Mr. Edmund G. Baker, of the British Museum, and pronounced identical with the original plant of Menzies.About the PublisherForgotten Books publishes hundreds of thousands of rare and classic books.
