Not all synonyms are necessarily given for each set of records. For an up-to-date list of synonyms for any given group name we suggest to go to the OVERALL botanical INDEX and do a "search in page" for any group name - to be accurate the whole group name must be entered into the window, for example : "Napus Group". The browser will then jump from one synonym to the other, including old, new, outdated, preferred ... by some authors, and even synonymous group names.
