AT: Water, Wind, Fire – How Texas Became Texas

September 19, 2023 @ 9:30 am



“Water, Wind, Fire – How Texas Became Texas” by Andy Newman

This presentation is focused on the topic of what made Texas ecosystems the way they are with a tie into why native plants occur where they do. Andy is an ecologist and project manager at Stantec Consulting Services in Houston, Texas. His professional career has been focused on wetland and stream ecology, bird biology, vegetation identification and community classification, and threatened and endangered species. His favorite plant groups are grasses, sedges, and rushes. He prefers hiking and exploring longleaf pine savannas, acidic bogs, post oak savanna, and coastal prairies. Andy also enjoys traveling and botanizing new areas such as the Appalachian Mountains, Baja California, Great Plains, and Costa Rica.
