Some collections are not true lichens but lichenicolous fungi. This checklist is based on collections made for this project on a single collecting trip so the inventory is far from being complete. Nevertheless, most of the conspicuous species have been documented. Specimens documenting the species are archived in the Steere Herbarium of The New York Botanical Garden. In order to search for specimens based on label data click on "Specimens" in the banner. This link will access collections of a specific collector, a given species, a certain trail, or a certain time of the year..
To generate a list of families of lichens collected in the Preserve click on "Family Checklists" just above this paragraph.. Clicking on the species name under a lichen family will generate data and images associated with the specimens.
