The first part has been written as an account of the way in which the naming of plants has changed with time and why the changes were necessary. In fact, at the heart of this way of assigning scientific names to plants is a simple two-word formula, whereby the first word is the genus name and the second one the species name or "specific epithet." The genus is the bigger grouping; to get more specific in identifying a plant within a genus, we refer to its specific epithet.
