Grover E. Murray studies in the American Southwest


Austin, Texas-based biologist Fleenor and evolutionary biologist and entomologist Taber (Saginaw Valley State U., Michigan) have co-authored two other texts on biological topics. For their latest collaboration, they catalogued some 500 species of plants from the Ottine Wetlands of Central Texas, ranging from mosses and liverworts to flowering plants, based on published and unpublished reports, collection records, and their own extensive fieldwork. The resulting text contains full-color photographs and detailed descriptions of 275 of the species; a checklist of all 500 is provided in the appendices. Also included is an introductory chapter on the region's geology and soils, climate, postglacial history, plant communities, and biogeography. For researchers and nature enthusiasts.
