About the Atlas - Contributors

Contributors

Countless individuals and institutions have provided data, assistance, and funding for the Atlas. We sincerely thank all of these individuals and institutions for their contributions. Without them the Atlas would not exist in its current form. We ask for the apologies of any individual or institution that we have inadvertently excluded from our acknowledgments. Finally, while we thank the following individuals and institutions, the final decisions regarding the data in the atlas are the responsibility of the authors.

We thank the various herbaria and their staff and volunteers who have contributed specimen data directly to the atlas including: BKL, BUF, CONN, NY, NYS, and RCFS.

We also thank the following individuals for contributing images to the Atlas including: Kimberly Smith and Andrew Nelson.

We also thank the individuals who have contributed information or data, or have reviewed the atlas including: Ed Fuchs, Tim Howard (for provided the generic ecological community descriptions), Anne Johnson, John Kartesz (for digitizing the 1990 NY Flora Association Atlas and allowing us to start this project with a large dataset), Richard Mitchell (Former NY State Botanist: for helping to produce the original 1990 NY Flora Association Atlas and for the immense amount of NYS floristic work he has contributed), Andrew Nelson, Connie Tedesco, and Donna Vogler, Steve Young.

We also thank the following individuals for contributing information on taxonomy and nomenclature: Ihsan Al-Shehbaz, Arthur Haines, Barre Hellquist, Justin Ramsey, Jim Reveal, Leila Shultz, Clive Stace, John Strother, Gordon Tucker, and Steve Young.

Funding for the New York Flora Atlas was made possible through a grant from the New York State Biodiversity Research Institute with matching funds from the New York Flora Association membership.

 

We graciously thank the following institutions for maintaining their valuable specimen collections. In addition, some of these institutions have directly provided the Atlas with data from their collections. Finally, other institutions have allowed researchers to use their facilities to record data from their collections.
