Vitis berlandieri

American wild vine, which was managed as a separate species under this name until the 1990s. It was described in 1880 by the French botanist Jules Émile Planchon (1823-1888). He named it after the Swiss biologist Jean-Louis Berlandier (1805-1851), who first described and catalogued it in 1834. Today, the vine is known as Vitis cinerea var. helleri, one of the five varieties of the species Vitis cinerea. In many sources, however, this is not yet understood, so that the name Vitis berlandieri is still often mentioned. See also under American vines and vine systematics.
