The common name of pea is simpler than its botanical (scientific) name Pisum sativum. Why then is the simpler common name not used instead of the complex scientific/botanical name in biology?

Hey student.
 
As we know that pea (vernacular name or local name) is simpler than its botanical (scientific) name Pisum sativum. These local names would vary from place to place, even within a country. Probably one would recognise the confusion that would be created if we did not find ways and means to talk to each other, to refer to organisms we are talking about.
Hence, there is a need to standardise the naming of living organisms such that a particular organism is known by the same name all over the world.
 
This is the answer of your question. Hope this helps you.
