Note on terminology
With regard to the form of medieval names and terms, throughout this paper I have followed the usages of Garcia-Ballester, French, Arrizabalaga, and Cunningham (1994).
As for the binomial names of plants and their synonims, in order to maintain a certain coherence and to provide a singular source of reference, I have chosen to follow Daems (1993) even when it did not coincide with the generalised use in the herbalist community.  Only in cases where Daems did not give the nomenclature, I have followed Penso (1983).
