Online Herbarium
Purple Pitcher Plant
Marking a large milestone in the world-wide effort to make scientific collections available online, the New York Botanical Garden recently added the purple pitcher plant specimen to its digital research collection. Several scientists, along with EUS parter Erik Kiviat, helped digitize this two-millionth species, as a part of a project to digitize the 7.3 million dried plant specimens in its William and Lynda Steere Herbarium. 

Our Mission

Both biogeophysical systems and human societies (cultures, economies, political regimes) are nested complex systems involving numerous interactions. Environmental and Urban Studies (EUS) is a transdisciplinary program that examines the interdependence of human societies and the physical environment. The program strives to ensure that majors have a solid background in the physical sciences, the humanities, and economics and policy--and understand what sustainability means in the real world. We aim to enhance students' understanding of the complexities of environmental and urban issues and their awareness of interrelationships between built and "natural" environments.
