What is Species

A species is a biological designation for any life form that identifies it within an established ranking system based on its physical and genetic similarities to other life forms. In botany, plants are known by their scientific name, using a system known as binomial nomenclature. This identifies groups of plants by their genus and species. For example, Mango is known as 'Mangifera indica' where the genus is Mangifera and the species is indicum. It may also be identified as M. indicum. Conventions for writing species name require that they be italicized, and that the genera (plural of genus) be capitalized and the species not be capitalized.

The International Plant Names Index, covering vascular plants, is the product of a collaboration between Kew, Harvard University Herbaria and the Australian National Herbarium. It provides the most comprehensive and regularly updated listing of scientific names for vascular plants. It currently contains 1,065,235 species names - with the large number of species names accounted for by the fact that many plants have more than one scientific name (averaging 2.7 names per vascular plant). This happens when the same plant species has been given different names, by different people at different times. The different names given to the same plant are called synonyms. Some synonyms reflect inadvertent (re)description of a species that had already been described by another researcher (taxonomic synonymy), but many other synonyms are the by-product of our improving understanding of the relationships among species, which results in species being ‘moved’ from one genus to another (nomenclatural synonymy).

A total of 3810 species of vascular plants (viz. 194 species of Pteridophyte, 7 species of Gymnosperm, and 3609 species of Angiosperm) are occurred in Bangladesh.
