    Hi all!
    Have good Advent!
    I'm going to start new thread on dendrology (it's about trees). I didn't finish my .xls file yet, but as I thing no one wouldn't answer so fast, I'll present the very immature begining of it, so if someone would like to parcipitate, You can get acquainted with that "stub" and think out, how to help me far... I'm working with that file, so after some time it'll look better...

    I've added the Italian for Chestnut, Beech, Oak, Olive, Wallnut (sic, that is spelled 'Walnut' in British English), Apple, and Willow. I've added 'Cork Oak' to the English list. I'll upload it soon as I've worked out how to.

    Indian Mast Tree is really bothering me, because I've seen them in Italy, and don't know what they're called in Italian.

    I can provide a few more terms but unfortunately I have problems with my account and cannot upload the updated xls file to this thread.

    I would be grateful if somebody could add them to the existing file for me:

    Betula → betulla
    Corylus → nocciolo
    Adansonia → baobab
    Capparis → cappero
    Carica → papaya
    Cistus → cisto
    Rhododendron → rododendro
    Vaccinium (V. myrtillus) → mirtillo nero
    (V. vitis-idaea) → mirtillo rosso
    (V. oxycoccus) → mirtillo palustre
    Ricinus → ricino
    Lonicera → caprifoglio
    Sambucus → sambuco
    Viscum → vischio
    Ficus → fico
    Morus → gelso
    Eucalyptus → eucalipto
    Myrtus → mirto
    Fraxinus → frassino
    Ligustrum → ligustro
    Crataegus → biancospino
    Cydonia → cotogno
    P.amygdalus → mandorlo
    P.cerasus* → ciliegio
    Pyrus → pero
    R.fruticosa → rovo comune
    R.idaeus → lampone
    Populus → pioppo
    p.alba → pioppo bianco
    p.nigra → pioppo nero
    p. tremula → pioppo tremulo

    Please note the English name for Rubus fruticosa is actually blackberry, not foxberry. According to my sources "foxberry" is another term for "lingonberry" and refers to Vaccinium vitis-idaea.


    I think it is Eucalyptus not Eucaluptus.

    I hope this helps! :)

    Please note this file is zipped. Should you have any problems unzipping it, just let me know. :)

    On a side note, here is a tool that may come in quite handy when creating glossaries like this:


    If you enter a scientific name, you will be given the corresponding vernacular name in different languages.

    I hope it helps!
