Search the Biodiversity Heritage Library

The Biodiversity Heritage Library is a consortium of natural history and botanical libraries that cooperate to digitize and make accessible the legacy literature of biodiversity held in their collections and to make that literature available for open access and responsible use as a part of a global “biodiversity commons.” BHL also serves as the foundational literature component of the Encyclopedia of Life (EOL).

Enter “New York, botany” in the search box and you can come up with a number of historical publications about botany in New York.  It includes famous titles like Torrey’s 1819 Flora of the NYC area as well as Taylor’s 1915 Flora of the Vicinity of New York.  To go to the Library CLICK HERE.
