Nice ..[fontem recensere]
Henrietta is OK: it sounds like Latin already. As for Libbie, it is usually an abbreviation for Elizabeth; I don't know if that's what it is in this case. I would make it Elisabetha Henrietta Hyman and see if anyone disagrees. Andrew Dalby (disputatio) 15:36, 26 Octobris 2009 (UTC)

- And, to answer your question, you're doing fine! It's a fact that adults need to study hard to learn a language (if it wasn't so, there would be no language textbooks and no language classes, and adult migrants would speak the language of their new country easily: we all know this isn't so) but yes, yes, you're making progress!
- I changed the formula "Botanistae" a little. The signs „“ are not used in Latin (maybe in German? I don't know). The <span class="Person"></span> maybe means something on a German or Dutch Wikipedia, but I don't think it has any effect here. I hope that's OK!

- i got the formulae from the en:wiki, i only changed the line wich is shown on the articles, i'm thinking about this line becaus the abbrevations are only to be used at botanical specimens. Hendricus 18:29, 28 Octobris 2009 (UTC)
Iohannes Gesnerus; and abbreviated botanical names[fontem recensere]
I moved him back, because the spelling with h is supported by the image on the page. In Latin you can spell this name with or without an h.
I believe that some botanical sigla end with "." and some don't. The "." is used when it is an abbreviation; when it's a full name, there is no "." At least, that's the way I understand it. Andrew Dalby (disputatio)
