capitalising species names


Don,

Capitalising a species name is a remnant of times when the USA had its own
nomenclature code, different from the rest of the world. In that, species
names derived from a person's name were to be capitalised. Long since, the
USA code has been abandoned and all species names, regardless of their
derivation should be written in lower case. Old habits die hard.......

Cheers, Wilbert
