After almost a year in operation, the Index to American Botanical
Literature, formerly published in the Bulletin of the Torrey Botanical Club,
and then Brittonia, is now fully functional and updated. It currently
contains 21,689 records of recent literature, both from books and journals,
dealing with American plants, from Greenland to Antarctica. One can search
by general category, author, journal, or several other options. Unlike the
hardcopy versions, the electronic
format has a key words option.

The URL of the Index is <> :

If you find any errors, typographical or otherwise, or omissions, please let
me know and they will be corrected. Authors and editors are encouraged to
send copies of their work to me for inclusion. If the publication is from a
botanical journal, the Library at The New York Botanical Garden probably
receives it (you can check the journal list on the web site ), and a copy
isn't necessary. However, if the publication is from a more general journal,
especially state academy publications, copies would be greatly appreciated.
After indexing they are deposited in the NYBG Library.
Please let me know how the IABL can be more useful to you. Thanks.
