Abstract

As part of ongoing efforts to understand and document the flora of the southeastern United States, a number of taxonomic changes at generic, specific, and infraspecific rank are made. We also discuss and clarify the recommended taxonomy for other taxa (not requiring nomenclatural acts) and present a point of view about the practical and philosophic basis for making taxonomic changes in an allegedly well-understood flora. The genera (and families) affected are Allium (Alliaceae), Erigeron, Liatris, and Trilisa (Asteraceae), Calycanthus (Calycanthaceae), Gaylussacia (Ericaceae), Dalea and Mimosa (Fabaceae), Hydrophyllum (Hydrophyllaceae), Didymoglossum (Hymenophyllaceae), Monarda (Lamiaceae), Kosteletzkya and Sida (Malvaceae), Narthecium (Nartheciaceae), Agalinis, Melampyrum, and Orobanche/Aphyllon/Myzorrhiza (Orobanchaceae), Dichanthelium and Elymus (Poaceae), Clematis (Ranunculaceae), and Maianthemum (Ruscaceae).
