- Since the publication of Gary D. Lowe's "How the Sequoias Were Named" in 2013, attempts by others to falsify the theory that Endlicher named the genus Sequoia from a derivative of the Latin verb "sequor", based on his having classified the genus, along with four other genera, as following a precise recursive numerical sequence of the median number of seeds per cone scale has resulted in additional historical research that recovered hitherto unidentified information. By necessity, "Debunking the Sequoia honoring Sequoyah Myth" is a new book and not a second edition of the earlier work.
