Texas Landscape Project: Nature and People is an “accessible, highly visual approach to understanding the conservation challenges” faced by the state of Texas. The book offers an examination of conservation and ecology in Texas, as well as environmental issues experienced by the entire state. The book was created over five years using data from 170 different agencies, universities, non-profits, and individual researchers and features 300 full-color, high resolution maps and 100 charts, drawings, and historic photographs. From bison and brown pelicans to billboards, Texas Landscape Project: Nature and People discusses the various environmental and conservation issues in Texas today.
