AbstractGood colour naming and colour coding are essential and also a good colour system. Once such a system has been adopted by an International Botanical Congress it is highly desirable that it be employed universally.
To my way of thinking the author of this work is correct in assuming that the system most suitable for this purpose is the Munsell system. I myself used it in describing the colours of Taraxacum achenes. Its three “co-ordinates”, hue, value and chroma, are in agreement with psychological experience and can be translated in physical unities, as is done by the I.S.C.C. (Inter Society Color Counsel) and the N.B.S. (National Bureau of Standards) (America). This is a requisite of normalization.
