Species Plantarum - in English?

Is anyone aware of a translation (or partial) of Species plantarum into English? Alternatively, is there a willing Latin translator (human) available for a few descriptions now (and possibly later)?

Actually, if you type “translate latin into english” (or whatever target language you’re interested in) into your browser, and then type or copy the latin text into the browser window, you’ll get a fairly good translation of Linnaeus’ description.

That said, it would be nice to have a complete translation of Species Plantarum, so let’s see if there is such a thing.


As far as I can, I am available for translation

Thank you! When I get something together, I may (probably will) take you up on that offer.

Just to be clear, I meant for the translation of a certain number of taxa
