Incorporation at NYBG


The Institute of Museum and Library Services (IMLS) grant MA-05-10-0504-10 supported the incorporation of the Kohlmeyer Herbarium into the New York Botanical Garden.

The Andrew W. Mellon Foundation supported the digitization of the Kohlmeyer type specimens, as part of the Global Plants Initiative.

We are especially grateful to Drs. Jan and Brigitte Kohlmeyer for entrusting NYBG with their herbarium.

We are also grateful to Ms. Catherine Innes, Director of the Office of Technology Development at the University of North Carolina for arranging the transfer of ownership of the Kohlmeyer Herbarium to NYBG, and to the staff of the University of North Carolinas Institute of Marine Sciences for logistic support during the herbarium move.

Kohlmeyer Project Videos

Three recent college graduates, Jessica Allen, Elizabeth Kiernan and Charles Zimmerman participated as interns in the incorporation of the Kohlmeyer Herbarium in June- July 2011. The students helped design and implement the documentation for the microscope slide, fluid-preserved, and needle-rush transect specimens. They also created the following videos, which provide an overview of the project and the work they performed.
