Aliso is the scientific journal of RSABG. International in scope, it specializes in plant evolutionary biology and systematics. It also features papers on floristics and other facets of botanical research pertaining to the western United States and areas of comparable climate and vegetation. The journal is named for the aliso, the Spanish word used by the early Californians for the western sycamore (Platanus racemosa Nutt.). Published twice a year in print and digital formats, this open-access journal is hosted online by Scholarship@Claremont, the scholarship repository of the Claremont Colleges. Article pdfs can be downloaded back to Volume 1 (1948)

Visit the Gardens
As of Spring 2023, the California Botanic Garden Library and Archives is currently limiting access to its collections to only students and faculty within the Claremont Graduate University, Botany program. However, students, faculty and staff across the Claremont Colleges and members of the public may still visit the California Botanic Garden (name changed in Spring 2020). Members may walk up for access while non-members will need to register online for a ticket before arriving.
