Russian names of taxa

Initially, the database of "Plantarium" contained only list of Latin names of plants. In order for Russian-language taxon names to appear in the description of taxon and on pages with images, they need to be found and added to the database.

Each added name can be accompanied by a comment explaining its origin, history, etc. Only verified facts should be stated in the comments. In doubtful situations, before adding information to the comment to the name, it should be discussed on the forum.

After adding Russian names to the site, you need to specify which categories each of them belongs to.
