Bern or Berne (Bern, Bärn, Berne, Berna, Berna) is the de facto capital of Switzerland, referred to by the Swiss as their (e.g. in German) Bundesstadt, or "federal city".
Binomial nomenclature ("two-term naming system") also called nomenclature ("two-name naming system") or binary nomenclature, is a formal system of naming species of living things by giving each a name composed of two parts, both of which use Latin grammatical forms, although they can be based on words from other languages.
Carl Adolf (Adolphe) Otth (April 2, 1803, Bern - May 16, 1839) was a Swiss physician and naturalist.
Eduard Fischer (16 June 1861 – 18 November 1939) was a Swiss botanist and mycologist.
Karl Wilhelm Gottlieb Leopold Fuckel (3 February 1821, Reichelsheim – 8 May 1876, Vienna) was a German botanist who worked largely on fungi.
Mycology is the branch of biology concerned with the study of fungi, including their genetic and biochemical properties, their taxonomy and their use to humans as a source for tinder, medicine, food, and entheogens, as well as their dangers, such as toxicity or infection.
Natural history is a domain of inquiry involving organisms including animals, fungi and plants in their environment; leaning more towards observational than experimental methods of study.
Otthia is a genus of fungi in the family Botryosphaeriaceae.
Peronospora is a genus of plant pathogens, belonging to the class of water moulds.
The Pucciniastraceae are a family of rust fungi in the order Pucciniales.
Pucciniastrum is a genus of Basidiomycota fungi.
Rusts are plant diseases caused by pathogenic fungi of the order Pucciniales (previously also known as Uredinales).
Taxonomy is the science of defining and naming groups of biological organisms on the basis of shared characteristics.
Theodor Rudolph Joseph Nitschke (26 July 1834, Breslau – 12 December 1883, Münster) was a German botanist and mycologist.
