Scallions, spring, or green?

So is there a botanical/culinary difference between scallions, spring and green onions? Are they just one in the same, and if not, are they fairly interchangeable as far as most recipes go?

Spring onions are actually onions culled in the Spring time, just with the whole shoot bit attached still. Green onions are scallions. Yeah, you can pretty much interchange them when convenient.
