This website is dedicated to the study of members of the Ericaceae that occur in the tropical Americas, more specifically within the Tropic of Cancer and Tropic of Capricorn (23°30'N-23°30'S).
The Boletineae, a suborder of Boletales, is treated here to include the mushroom genera assigned to the Boletaceae by Singer (1986). Much of the recent generic recognition is derived from phylogenetic inferences published by Nuhn et al. (2013) and Wu et al. (2014). Specimens housed in herbarium NY can be accessed or searched.
The digital collections of the NYBG Virtual Herbarium, comprising approximately 1,300,000 herbarium specimens and 225,000 high-resolution specimen images.
Information and the images that have been collected about Elaphoglossum.
A database driven, specimen based, illustrated checklist of the flowering plants of the Nouragues Nature Reserve
The purpose of this glossary is to provide definitions that are used in the descriptions and keys of this and other web sites.
The goal of this website is to provide in a single location all of the information that we and our collaborators have accumulated on the taxonomy and biology of the Brazil nut family.
Catalog of the living collections of The New York Botanical Garden
An intensive inventory of the macrofungi (i.e., mushrooms, boletes, puffballs, bracket fungi, etc.) of Costa Rica began to document the diversity of Neotropical macrofungi to further our understanding of their biology and to include them in forest management plans and conservation activities. The information has added significantly to our knowledge of Neotropical mycology and is available for subsequent studies on the ecology and systematics of macrofungi by the collaborators and the rest of the mycological community.
A worldwide monograph and phylogenetic study of the fern genus Megalastrum (Dryopteridaceae)
An ongoing project that will produce a complete taxonomic inventory and description of the tribe Miconieae (Melastomataceae). This is a group of over 1800 species from the Americas, mostly of trees and shrubs from tropical rain and montane forests.
Approximately 90,563 vascular plant type specimens from the New York Botanical Garden Herbarium.
This project aims to document all the vascular plants of a region that is key to the understanding of plant biodiversity and plant conservation in the Neotropics. We will also assess which plant species are most important for conservation.
A database driven, specimen based, illustrated checklist of the flowering plants of the Osa Peninsula in Puntarenas province of Costa Rica.
Open Access, Full-text scans of taxonomic and allied literature in the natural sciences
This site provides data on taxa of the macrofungal, largely ectomycorrhizal genus Amanita, the saprobic genus Limacella, and the family Amanitaceae (Agaricales, Basidiomycetes, Fungi) of which these genera are the only known members.
Web access to a botanical database developed from The World List of Cycads, with a page for every known cycad.
A Site with Information on the Biodiversity of Melastomataceae.
The PO is organized in a complex hierarchical structure in which botanical concepts are described by their precise logical definitions and their relationships to one another.
Solanaceae Source aims to produce a worldwide taxonomic monograph of all species in the genus Solanum.
