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. Funding for the New York Flora Atlas was made intitally made possible through a New York State Biodiversity Research Institute grant and is support by donations and New York Flora Association memberships.
