Common and Scientific Names of Weeds in Canada
Prepared by S.J. Darbyshire, M. Favreau and M. Murray for Agriculture and Agri-Food Canada.
Published by Canadian Government Publishing, 2000.
|Confusion invariably arises when we attempt to select the
preferred common name of a particular weed in Canada because the common, or
vernacular, name often differs from one region to another or even changes with
time. Sometimes the same name is used for two or more different weeds.
Common and Scientific Names of Weeds in Canada provides a comprehensive
list of preferred common names for weeds in both official languages to
encourage uniformity in extension literature and in the labelling of
herbicides. This edition adds a number of species to the previous list,
bringing the number of taxa treated to 1130.
Note: Previous 1992 edition was titled Common and Botanical Names of Weeds in Canada.
