1 In reality, as Fée says, there is no botanical affinity between the Rubus, or bramble, and the Rhamnus.
2 Sprengel identifies this plant with the Zizyphus vulgaris of Linnæus, the jujube, and Desfontaines is of the same opinion. Fée , however, takes it to be the Rhamnus saxatilis of Linnæus, the rock buckthorn.
3 Identified by some authorities with the Paliurus aculeatus of Decandolles, mentioned in c. 71. Sprengel is in doubt whether it may not be the Rhamnus lycioides of Linnæus.
4 Not a characteristic, Fée says, of the genus Rhamnus of modern Botany.
5 Or "Lycian" extract. See B. xii. c. 15.
