Native Plant Society of Texas, North Central Chapter: Flora of the Chihuahuan Desert – Fort Worth

Michael Eason, freelance botanist, author and photographer, will speak on plants in the Chihuahuan Desert region of West Texas, from Val Verde County to El Paso, will focus on species with interesting seed dispersal mechanisms and pollination biology. He’ll also address the topography, geology and climatic influences that make this region so diverse and online and print resources for plant identification.

Michael Eason performs plant surveys and inventories on both private and public lands throughout Texas. He is on staff at San Antonio Botanical Gardens, where he heads the Rare Plant Research and Conservation Program. Previously he worked for the Lady Bird Johnson Wildflower Center as Conservation Program Manager, a position he held from 2003-2012. During that time, he managed such projects as the Millennium Seed Bank, Ferns of the Trans-Pecos, and Vegetation Survey of Big Bend National Park.

Michael’s recently published field guide, Wildflowers of Texas, has met with popular and critical acclaim. Copies of this handy reference book will be available for purchase at the meeting.
