Abstract

A naturally occurring, reproducing population of Betula nigra L. (River Birch) has been collected for the first time on Long Island, NY, in a recharge basin located in Huntington Station, Suffolk Co. This is the first verifiable collection for both the county and the island and represents a new and disjunct population for the species. A review of reported past occurrences in the literature for Betula nigra on Long Island is discussed.
