Peer-reviewed articles published from 2001-2012

Living Collections Research at the Arnold Arboretum

The following is a list of the peer-reviewed articles published mainly between 2001 and 2012 for research utilizing the Living Collections of the Arnold Arboretum. The authors cited below include Arboretum staff (highlighted in bold) as well as scientists from other academic institutions. “Collections” are defined as accessioned plants, their data/archives, as well as specimens from the cultivated herbarium, spontaneous vegetation, invertebrates, and even soils within the 281-acre landscape. Only articles appearing in peer-reviewed journals are included in this list; publications in trade journals, magazines (including Arnoldia and various plant society journals), and books are not included. A few citations pre-dating 2001 are included in this list because they relied heavily on Arboretum collections. Though intended to be comprehensive, the list may not contain unreported material. The articles are arranged by topic including:
