Nomenclature is an integral part of taxonomic study and aims at providing correct name for a taxon. The nomenclature of plants is governed by the International Code of Nomenclature of algae, fungi and plants (ICN). The provisions in the Code and correct interpretation of articles are always an enigma for researchers and teachers in taxonomy.

The recently held XVIII International Botanical Congress in Melbourne (July 2011) made a number of very significant changes in the rules governing nomenclature. The Code with its legislative and esoteric language is difficult to interpret without proper training. A three-day work shop is conducted in Department of Botany, University of Calicut on 17-19 March 2014, led by specialists largely to cater the needs of researchers and teachers in taxonomy by providing ample opportunity to study the provisions in the Code, to interpret correctly the various articles and to solve nomenclatural problems easily by practical training.
