Media reviews

"[Woody Plants of the Trans-Pecos] adds a contribution to the management of the Trans-Pecos rangelands. This book does an excellent job of bringing the two biotypes (flora and fauna) together in a practical, easy to understand format. The photography is outstanding as well."
– Charles R. Hart, author of Brush and Weeds of Texas Rangelands and co-author of Toxic Plants of Texas

"This book will fill a gap in Texas plant books. Woody Plants of the Big Bend and Trans-Pecos will be an important contribution to wildlife management in the region. There are no similar books like this one. This concise, informative and well-illustrated book will be indispensable for landowners, professionals, students or anyone interested in the practical habitat value of common Trans Pecos shrubs."
– Steve Nelle, former USDA Natural Resources Conservation Service wildlife biologist
