Native Plants for Edwards Plateau Landscapes (ERM-044)
Land fragmentation and human development have dramatically altered wildland habitats throughout the urban interface area. The introduction of exotic and ornamental plant species associated with these two processes has had a negative impact on the ecological productivity of these areas. These human-created and -dominated landscapes do not support functioning ecosystems and further deplete natural habitats that are vital to native wildlife.
