    Does anyone know which book/journal the classification of T. corymbosa was published in? i cant find any articles specifically on this, so i am thinkin git was probably in a larger volume...????


    the usda ref list is this:

    but these seem mostly to do with geographic range...i am looking for the description and reclassification publication that put R. corymbosa into T. corymbosa (i already know why, through other papers, but want the original descriptions).

    thanks!!

    From this page and its internal links: http://www.ars-grin.gov/cgi-bin/npgs/html/taxon.pl?310542

    Basionym: Convolvulus corymbosus L., Syst. nat. ed. 10, 2:923. (1759).
    Transfer to Turbina made by Rafinesque, in Fl. tellur. 4:81. (1838).

    This paper might also be worth tracking down:
    Manos, P. S., Miller, R. E., & Wilkin, P. (2001). Phylogenetic analysis of Ipomoea, Argyreia, Stictocardia, and Turbina suggests a generalized model of morphological evolution in morning glories. Syst. Bot. 26:585–602. Abstract: http://www.bioone.org/doi/abs/10.1043/0363-6445-26.3.585

    I have that one, thanks :)

    but the citation you gave me opened up whole new doors to new papers i am anxious to read!!!


    however i am still wondering. when RAf moved it to Turbina, am i right in thinking there would have been some form of publication outlining why? if so, this is the paper i am trying to find. it is this right? Fl. tellur. 4:81. (1838). thus far i have only found citations. what is the full name of "Fl. tellur." do you know?

    thanks!

    Yes, usually 70 years after the death of the author (can be different in some countries, but most use 70 years). Rafinesque died in 1840, so his works came out of copyright in 1910.
