Eckert Herbarium (ECK)

The Eckert Herbarium houses a collection of vascular plants, focusing on the flora of Western New York. A much smaller number of specimens come from elsewhere in New York state and the United States, mostly notably from coastal Maine and northern Florida. The earliest specimen dates from 1861; a small number date from the turn of the twentieth century, but the great majority date from the 1960s, 1970s, and the 1980s.

Located on Buffalo's waterfront, the Field Station is the hub of the Great Lake Center's fieldwork. Boasting a fleet of 15 vessels, a microscopy lab, and a fisheries lab, the Field Station, the field station houses research and data that help us protect Western New York’s greatest natural resource, Lake Erie.

The Western New York Partnership for Regional Invasive Species Management (WNY PRISM) was formed to combat the spread of both aquatic and terrestrial invasive species and mitigate associated threats by providing region-wide coordination for monitoring and management. WNY PRISM works with local professionals, organizations, and private citizens to improve, restore, and protect aquatic and terrestrial resources. WNY PRISM is a sponsored program through the Research Foundation of SUNY and is hosted by Buffalo State's Great Lakes Center.
