Ferns - Scientific (Latin) Names All Scientific Names for all species on this site
Scientific Names (also known as Latin Names) are the universally recognized way to distinctly refer to individual species of plants.
Common Names will vary from region to region, but Scientific Names are consistent across regions.
However, that doesn't mean that there is only one Scientific Name for each species; often there are several.
Please note that over the past couple of years many Scientific names for species have been changing due to DNA research. Therefore the
Scientific name that you see on this site may not be the one that you are used to seeing for a particular species.
