A scientist has come across a plant

Question:

A scientist has come across a plant which he feels is a new species. How will he go about its identification, classification and nomenclature?

Solution:

A new identify species can be easily classified by taxonomic aids. The scientist has to do comparative studies of the morphological & anatomical features with the

features of existing plants present in the taxonomical aids and according to binomial nomenclature given by Carl Linnaeus, the species can be classified. Some of the

taxonomical aids that can be used are flora, manuals, monographs, catalogues etc.
