From Dr. Douglas C. Daly's work on the frankincense family to Tatyana A. Lobova's work on bat-plant interactions, the New York Botanical Garden's International Plant Science Center sponsors a multitude of engaging field research projects. Since 1891, the Garden scientists have conducted almost 2000 expeditions and visitors to this site can learn about some of the more recent expeditions here. On the right side of the homepage, visitors can scroll through a list of researchers, or they may browse through the list by plant type or geographic location. Further down the page, there is a "Research Web Sites" list. The list includes over a dozen sites, including "Brazil Nut-Past, Present, and Future" and "Fungal and Plant Diversity of Central French Guiana". Visitors should not miss the excellent field primers "An Introduction to Ferns" and "An Introduction to Lichens", which can be perused here or printed out for handy reference.
