Regional field guides just don't cut it in Texas. There's too much of everything—plants, animals, and natural environments—to lump us in with great swaths of North America. To identify all the state's natural inhabitants, you need comprehensive field guides dedicated specifically to Texas—and we have them.
UT Press is pleased to launch this new series of guides that will help you discover, understand, and conserve the state's amazing natural riches. Each field guide combines first-rate color photography with informative, easy-to-navigate text. Their compact size makes them handy to carry in a pocket or pack, and the flexible, laminated covers will withstand years of use. In subsequent seasons, we plan to bring you guides to butterflies, dragonflies, reptiles, and amphibians.
