In botanical nomenclature , AUTHOR CITATION refers to citing the person or group of people who validly published a botanical name , i.e. who first published the name while fulfilling the formal requirements as specified by the International Code of Nomenclature for algae, fungi, and plants (ICN). In cases where a species is no longer in its original generic placement (i.e. a new combination of genus and specific epithet), both the author(s) of the original genus placement and those of the new combination are given (the former in parentheses).

There are differences between the botanical code and the normal practice in zoology . In zoology, the publication year is given following the author name(s) and the authorship of a new combination is normally omitted
