Staten Island Museum (SIM)
The Staten Island Museum herbarium (SIM) contains over 25,000 specimens, focused on the flora of Staten Island and the northeastern United States. It is a complete record of the flora of Staten Island, from the 1860s to the present. The core of the herbarium was donated by co-founders Arthur Hollick and Nathaniel Lord Britton, and is composed of specimens they collected during the 1870s-1880s. Specialized sub-collections include hybrid oaks (Hollick/Britton/Davis) and hybrid violets and ferns (Philip Dowell). Aside from vascular plants, the collection also contains mosses, lichens, algae, fungi and slime molds.
