International Code of Botanical Nomenclature (ICBN) An internationally recognized code intended to promote uniformity and stability within botanical nomenclature. The code provides a method and record for naming taxonomic groups, avoiding names that could cause error, ambiguity, or confusion. These difficulties are a significant detriment, plaguing communication and understanding in the use of common names. The code is adopted by the International Botanical Congress, and is updated from time to time. The code adopted in 1993 by the 15th congress in Yakahama, Japan, was known as the Tokyo Code. The most recent publishing of this dictionary was adopted in 1999 at St. Louis, Missouri, by the 16th International Botanical Congress.
