    Hey Alex,

    I think you are referring to this:
    http://blogs.nature.com/news/2012/01/revised-rules-for-botanical-taxonomy-take-effect.html

    I have not read the full text, but as I understand this we are only talking about botanical descriptions--plants will still be given Latin (or Latinized) names.
