AbstractThe New York Botanical Garden’s DNA Bank is a centralized repository for use in analyzing plants at their most essential levels. Extracted DNA and tissue collections of the DNA Bank are authoritatively identified, properly documented, cross-referenced to specimens in the Garden’s William and Lynda Steere Herbarium and other herbaria, and managed on the model of traditional museum collections.
