Patricia K. Holmgren

I officially retired on 30 September 2000, following 32+ years of managing The New York Botanical Garden Herbarium.  In retirement, I continue working with Dr. Noel H. Holmgren to complete the final volume (volumes 2a and 2b) of Intermountain Flora.

I also continue to serve as principal coordinator and senior editor of Index Herbariorum, an international guide to the location and contents of the world's 3167 public herbaria.  I also serve as coordinator and editor of the on-line edition of Index Herbariorum, which provides information on 3167 herbaria and 9534 associated staff members in 165 countries and is available on the NYBG web site <>.

I serve on the councils for the International Association for Plant Taxonomy and the International Organization for Plant Information.
