Example text

Notes [19] 1 Both works are successors to a preliminary version (Frodin, 1964). 2 For a chronological sequence of major biological bibliographies, see table 17 in Simon, 1977, pp. 185–187. They are also listed alphabetically therein (pp. 12–23). 3 For Gesner, see Wellisch, 1984, and Heller, 1983 [originally publ. 1970], p. 171; for Aldrovandi, see Simon, 1977, pp. 28–30; for Bauhin, see Heller, 1983 [originally publ. 1970], p. 171. Simon makes reference to Aldrovandi’s contributions to bibliographical scholarship in general, and notes that his Bibliothecarum thesaurus of 1583 remains extant in the Bologna University Library.

In the decade of the 1870s there were founded four serials – all German – which would find wide use in general as well as systematic botany: Repertorium annuum literature botanicae periodicae (1873–86), covering literature for 1873 through 1879, Just’s Botanischer Jahresbericht (established in 1874), Naturae Novitates (from 1879), and the relatively timely Botanisches Centralblatt (from 1880). 40 In the Americas, the Torrey Botanical Club in 1886 initiated the Index to American Botanical Literature as part of their Bulletin and, in 1918, a group of interested botanists led by the physiological ecologist B.

52 Current documentation of European botanical literature, where undertaken, is – apart from Kew Record (and, through 1998, Excerpta Botanica) – presently at national or regional level. In the Russian Federation, indexing of new literature on any scale has since the 1950s been concentrated in Referativnyj Zˇurnal, although Botanicˇeskij Zˇurnal remains useful for reviews and notices. Elsewhere, recent outlets for continuing documentation have included Flora Malesiana Bulletin (1947– ), AETFAT Index (1952–86, afterwards absorbed into Kew Record), and Bibliografia Brasileira de Botânica (1957–75).
