Each of the two parts of the name used Latin grammatical forms. the first word is the name of the genus (see Plant Evolution and Taxonomy).

In binomial Latin, the genus is a noun and the species is a descriptive adjective for it. Take for example, Acer is the Latin plant name (genus) for maple. Since there are many different types of maple, another name (the species) is added to for positive identification.
