Living Collections Research at the Arnold Arboretum

The following is a comprehensive, but incomplete, list of the peer-reviewed articles published since ~2001 for research by Arboretum staff as well as scientists from other academic institutions that utilize the resources of the Arnold Arboretum. Resources include the Living Collections, Research Facilities, and Horticultural Library. “Living Collections” are accessioned plants, their data/archives, as well as specimens from the cultivated herbarium, spontaneous vegetation, invertebrates, and even soils within the 281-acre landscape. Highlighted authors are Arboretum staff, Arboretum Visiting Scholars, Fellows, and Associates, Arboretum Putnam Fellows (), Arboretum Award Recipients () and Arboretum Interns.
