The rules for formatting botanical names have been agreed upon by the International Association for Plant Taxonomy (IAPT).

The Compleat Botanica adheres to the official standard for botanical names throughout the software.  Proper capitalization rules, font styling rules, quotation of cultivars, and abbreviations for "variety" and "subspecies" are consistently applied on all displays and all printed reports and labels.
