On the cultivation of the plants belonging to the natural order of Proteeae is an 1809 paper on the Proteaceae family of flowering plants. Although nominally written by Joseph Knight as a paper on cultivation techniques, all but 13 pages consists of an unattributed taxonomic revision now known to have been written by Richard Salisbury.

  • On the cultivation of the plants belonging to the natural order of Proteeae est une publication parue en 1809 sur la famille de plante des Proteaceae. Ce livre écrit par Joseph Knight et censé au départ parler des techniques de culture de ces plantes à fleurs ne comprend que 13 pages à ce sujet, le reste étant une révision taxonomique au départ non attribué mais aujourd'hui connu pour avoir été écrite par Richard Anthony Salisbury. La publication de ce document a déclenché l'un des conflits les plus tristes de la botanique du XIXe siècle en Angleterre, parce que Salisbury a utilisé dans la publication de nombreux noms de plantes que Robert Brown avait l'intention de publier dans son propre ouvrage. L'article de Brown avait déjà été lu à la Linnean Society of London, lors d'une session à laquelle Salisbury avait assisté, mais son ouvrage n'avait pas encore été imprimé. En publiant ce document avant Brown, Salisbury revendique son antériorité pour la description de nombreuses espèces. À la suite de cela, Salisbury est accusé de plagiat et mis au ban des cercles botaniques. Il a surtout choqué beaucoup de ses contemporains. (fr)
  • On the cultivation of the plants belonging to the natural order of Proteeae is an 1809 paper on the Proteaceae family of flowering plants. Although nominally written by Joseph Knight as a paper on cultivation techniques, all but 13 pages consists of an unattributed taxonomic revision now known to have been written by Richard Salisbury. Publication of the paper triggered one of the most bitter disputes in 19th century botany, because Salisbury had preempted the publication of numerous plant names that Robert Brown had intended to publish. Brown's paper had already been read to the Linnean Society of London, at meeting which Salisbury had attended, but his paper had not yet made it to print. In publishing this paper before Brown's On the natural order of plants called Proteaceae had been printed, Salisbury beat Brown to print, claiming priority for the names that Brown had authored. As a result of this, Salisbury was accused of plagiarism and ostracised from botanical circles. Contemporary notes and letters indicate widespread condemnation of Salisbury's actions. For example, Samuel Goodenough wrote "How shocked was I to see Salisbury's surreptitious anticipation of Brown's paper on new Holland plants, under the name and disguise of Mr. Hibbert's gardener! Oh it is too bad!"; and James Edward Smith wrote that he had a copy of Knight's paper "but shall not keep it — I mean hereafter not to notice it or any other of the author's productions." Brown himself wrote of Salisbury "I scarcely know what to think of him except that he stands between a rogue and a fool." Initially, Salisbury's names were ignored in favour of Brown's names. When the conservation of generic names was introduced in the 1900s, Brown's genera were formally conserved. However it was not possible to conserve species names until the 1980s, by which time the priority of Salisbury's species names had long been accepted. Thus On the cultivation of the plants belonging to the natural order of Proteeae is the source of numerous names of Proteaceae taxa. (en)
