Collectors Represented in the Herbarium -- Bryophytes


Derived in part from Holmgren, P. et al., A short description of the collections of The New York Botanical Garden Herbarium (NY). Brittonia 8: 285-296. 1996. This list is a work in progress.  The goal is to include all NYBG staff members, collectors with more than 1000 collections in the herbarium, plus all those whose collections serve as vouchers for published botanical studies.

Following the link leads to database records details for these collections. The judgment (sometimes educated guess) as to whether the collections at NY represent the collector's original collections or a significant subset thereof is derived from institutional records, Index Herbariorum and Taxonomic Literature II.
