PROPOSALS, V IBC (1930)

Proposals submitted to the V International Botanical Congress,
Cambridge, 1930 to amend the International rules of botanical
nomenclature, ed. 2.
(the Brussels Rules).

Note: the Congress was held at Cambridge, but initially it had
been announced to be held in London (this can still be found in
some of the literature), the location where the 1915 Congress
had been scheduled.  However, there was indeed a Congress in
London, which did deal with nomenclature, but this was in
1924, the Imperial Botanical Conference;  this laid the
groundwork for the reconciliation at Cambridge.

The IV IBC, Ithaca, 1926, undertook only preparatory actions.
