  1. I noticed you quoted my review of Pino Silvestre. I appreciate your clarification regarding the "Scots Pine" - I didn't know that. However, unless you were addressing my capitalization of the second word in the name, silvestris, my comment stands as true. The Wikipedia article on this particular pine goes on to state that this type of evergreen was commonly used as the Christmas tree here in the states. I wonder if it is used as such in Scotland, too? Cheers.

    I don't recall exactly what I said. However it is true that the specific epithet of a botanical name, in this case, sylvestris, is not capitalized, only the genus name, i.e. Pinus. Also, both are either written in italics or are under-lined. Ciao, Breck [P.S. Your inbox for private messages appears to be full and hence no new private messages can be sent to you].
