Descriptive Entry
Descriptive Entry
These records document departmental involvement in and administration of the International Association for Plant Taxonomy (IAPT), U.S. chapter. The IAPT was founded in 1950 to carry out projects of interest and concern to systematic botanists which require or profit from international cooperation. IAPT is responsible for the establishment and functioning of inter-Congress nomenclature committees and for the organization and execution of the nomenclature sessions at each International Botanical Congress. IAPT publishes a journal, Taxon, and a handbook series, Regnum Vegetabile.
Materials in this accession include correspondence concerning membership, publications and taxonomical issues; financial summary reports; committee minutes and related records; grant records; and monthly reports and other materials concerning the Index Nominum Genericorum (part of the Regnum Vegetabile series). Most of the records were created by Senior Botanist Richard S. Cowan.
