The New York Botanical Garden web site now includes a searchable
version of entries in the Index to American Botanical Literature at:
The Index to American Botanical Literature has provided a service to
the American botanical community for over a century, published
initially in the Bulletin of the Torrey Botanical Club and
subsequently in Brittonia. The Index is compiled from resources of The
LuEsther T. Mertz Library of The New York Botanical Garden and
contains entries dealing with various aspects of extant and fossil
American plants and fungi, including systematics (traditional and
molecular) and floristics, morphology, and ecology, as well as
economic botany and general botany (publications dealing with
botanists, herbaria, etc.).
The searchable database includes all those entries published in the
Index since 1996, and thus includes botanical literature
appearing since late 1995. The database is updated on a regular basis.
Retroactive indexing of previously published entries is envisioned.
