Updated original Bibliography Print medium

The following is the basic bibliography we originally consulted plus the most reliable references we constantly refer to. The earlier table-form version of this is no longer available.  Many publications fall in between. Those that we seldom consult, or check once for a specific genus / species / cultivar, are mentioned on the bottom of generic records. Some listed below are repeated there if they are particularly relevant (relied exclusively for either a language or most botanical names within the genus).
