The Naming of Names

It looks like there will be a major re-naming and re-ordering job to do on my flora when the new edition of Clive Stace’s New Flora of the British Isles comes out in a month or two.  He has followed the APG III approach, which I heartily endorse, but as well as the upheavals in various families notably Scrophulariaceae and Lilliaceae there are smaller changes such as Ranunculus ficaria being moved to the genus Ficaria.
