Index of genera and species
In this index only genera and species are treated, taxa of minor order are not
included. The species are listed in alphabetical order and the literature is
cited in chronological and alphabetical order. Publications giving only listings
of species without comment are omitted; only publications with a description
are used. When descriptions are given in more than one publication of an author
of a combination of authors, the later publications are listed chronologically
behind the first one without repeated citing of the name(s) of the author(s).
The original description is marked with an asterisk behind the publication. When
the original description is repeated in later publications, these are also marked
with an asterisk.
During work on leaf impressions/compressions the need of an index
of names and descriptions of angiosperm leaf species became evident. It also
was of value to know where, when and by whom they were created or used. Therefore
this index was made, centered on the literature available in the Netherlands
and focusing on the northern hemisphere. The author is aware that much of the
published material is missing in this list; nevertheless he hopes that this
index may lead to a more easy approach of the literature on leaf impressions/compression
fossils and the avoidance of the creation of homonyms.
