Best to keep names accurate, that way everyone knows what is meant!

I happen to know of all the old synonyms of Pinus nigra (as conifers are my special botanical interest), but most people won't, and you won't find them in most books.

The correct name is Pinus nigra var. nigra – the species was first described from Austria, and the typical variety of a species always takes the species name as the varietal name as well (known as an 'autonym' in botanical classification: ICBN Articles 6.8 and 26.3). Under this botanical rule, var. austriaca becomes an invalid synonym of var. nigra.

pinus nigra var austriaca - ist korrekt. Den Stammumfang habe ich bereits angegeben. Er wird durch einen Bug offenbahr nicht angezeigt. Er beträgt über 730 Zentimeter. Ich weiß leider nicht mehr den genauen Wert.

Sehr dichte Schwartzkiefer !!

Ist es ein pinus nigra var austriaca ? Gibt es ein Stammumfang fur diese Baume ?

Das sie im Jahr 980 gepflanzt wurde hab ich nicht erfunden, dass steht auf einer Erklärungs- und Geschichtstafel neben dem Baum.
