Successful rangeland management begins with proper plant identification. This website provides a description, identifying characteristic, the geographic distribution, and a habitat description of species found on Texas rangelands, along with photographs of the plant and its distinguishing features. Information on the most common toxic plants in the state, including signs of poisoning and controlling these plants, are also included.
The feature “help me identify my plant” uses a searchable database to narrow down the plant list. New plants are always being added to the site, supported by Texas Master Naturalist volunteers.
