This website provides access to the NHN herbarium specimens and images. The NHN herbarium database incorporates data from various sources. A majority of records relate to specimens held at one of the NHN herbaria (Leiden, Utrecht & Wageningen). The database also contains records of duplicates sent to other herbaria, specimens databased for taxonomic revision and from areas of special interest to NHN, for instance Gabon.
Individuals or organisations undertake to document, develop and preserve a comprehensive collection of one group of plants in trust for the future. Most of the collections are based around a related group, for example a collection of oaks or daffodils. This allows the scheme to develop systematic coverage of cultivated plants in the United Kingdom.
The National Wetland Plant List (NWPL) represents a collaborative effort between four Federal agencies, under the administrative responsibilities of the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers, to update and administer the national list. In a several-year effort, the NWPL was updated for nomenclature, taxonomy, and wetland ratings for 8,154 species across the United States and territories. The wetland ratings represent the frequency of occurrence of a plant species in a wetland and are used in direct support of the Section 404 of the Clean Water Act, the Swampbuster provisions under the Farm Bill, and the National Wetland Inventory Program.

The New York Flora Atlas is a source of information for the distribution of plants within the state, as well as information on plant habitats, associated ecological communities, and taxonomy. In addition, users can learn about the location of vouchered specimens and see images to get a better visual for each plant.
Our mission is to facilitate conservation of rare animals, rare plants, and natural ecosystems, which we commonly refer to as "natural communities." We combine thorough field inventories, scientific analyses, expert interpretation, and comprehensive databases on New York's flora and fauna to deliver quality information to partners working in natural resource conservation.
Digitized archive of historic New York State newspapers organized by county
The LuEsther T. Mertz Library of the New York Botanical Garden digitized a select group of books and journals from the Library’s holdings that relate mostly to the natural history and landscape development of New York City and State. Featured in this collection are works on the flowering and non-flowering plant life of many towns and counties of New York State and early and rare guides to street trees, parks and the developed landscape and roadways of New York City’s boroughs. Several journals and reports are from institutions such as the Staten Island Association of Arts and Sciences, the Horticultural Society of Staten Island, the Bronx River Parkway Commission, the Brooklyn Parks Commission, and Olmsted Vaux & Company. Digitization for this project was made possible by a generous grant from the Metropolitan New York Library Council (METRO).
