Botany Research Guide: Michigan Botanist

This is a general guide to finding information on plants, including floras, taxonomy, identification keys, habitat and growing needs.

Page Contents

Introduction

Michigan Botanist is one of the best places to find articles specific to the native flora of Michigan. However, it is poorly indexed in commercial databases and to find topics or articles one either has to page through each issue or search dozens of pdf files. HathiTrust provides full text to the early volumes, 1-37 (1962-1998), but provides no search feature to the whole series, just within small, individual pdf files. In addition, the navigation to find a specific volume and issue in each pdf file is frustrating to say the least.

On this page I listed the tables of contents to the volumes not indexed on the UM-Michigan Botanist page. For full text access to volumes 38-current, go to the Michigan Botanist homepage. The articles can be found by title lists, author lists, and keyword searching. I plan to add ToCs to vols 38 onward to the page as time allows.

Contact Suzi Teghtmeyer for assistance if needed.

From 35.3 (1996) page 119: The March, 1996 issue of the Michigan Botanist (Vol. 35, No. 2) was incorrectly paginated.
This issue should run from page 41 (outside front cover) to page 72 (table of contents). Instead it was begun with page 33. The only paper for which this creates any difficulty with unambiguous citation is the first paper in the issue, by Reznicek and Judziewicz. If you wish to cite this paper, the correct form is: Reznicek, A.A., & E.J. Judziewicz, 1997 ("1996"), A new hybrid species, xCalammophila don-hensonii (Ammophila breviligulata x Calamagrostis canadensis, Poaceae), from Grand Island,Michigan, Mich. Bot. 35:35-40 bis.
