Illustrated Flora of East Texas

A project to produce a fully illustrated guide to the nearly 3,402 plant species occurring in the eastern portion of Texas.

Volume 1 is now available! It includes a 270 page general introduction to East Texas and hundreds of color photos, maps, and paintings. It also includes taxonomic treatments of all East Texas ferns, gymnosperms, and monocots.

We are pleased to announce that the book can now be accessed on-line.
