     The New York Botanical Garden web site now includes a searchable
     version of entries in the Index to American Botanical Literature at:
     http://www.nybg.org/bsci/iabl.html

     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.
