Scientific research staff at The New York Botanical collect and create many types of data related to the species they study.  To link all these resources to together, we have created electronic floras and monographs that include the addition of descriptive text, identification keys, digitized photographs, publications, and field observations.  These research websites document the plants of a given region or of a particular evolutionary group. These data are often linked to herbarium specimen records and images, the Garden’s DNA Bank, literature references, gene sequences, and ethnobotanical uses, creating a comprehensive profile for the species that have been studied in depth by NYBG scientists.
