by Warnock, Barton H.
Since their publication in the 1970s by Sul Ross State University, Barton Warnock's "Wildflowers" books have been essential reading for anyone interested in the plants of West Texas. Complete with color photographs of all catalogued plants, Warnock's books are the most comprehensive guides to the plants of West Texas.
Unlike most botanists, who have access only to public lands, Barton Warnock was granted access to much of the private land in the area and has included this information in his books. Owing to the overall scope of his collection and his extensive knowledge of the region, Barton Warnock has been called "The poster boy for the wildflowers of Texas." His importance to the botanical community is has been most notably recognized by an unprecedented twelve plants that others have chosen to name in his honor.
Wildflowers of the Davis Mountains and the Marathon Basin, Texas is the third of Warnock's books on the plants of West Texas.
