Texas

Texas is a large state made up of many diverse habitats including the Northern Staked plains, South Texas plains, hill country and oak prairie, the arid Trans Pecos, the pinewoods and big thicket, the South Texas brush country and coastal habitats and an array of wetlands from freshwater swamps, marshes and lakes to saltwater swamps.

Texas Forests
Texas has several forest types. The Pineywoods is a temperate, coniferous forest made up mainly of pine species – like loblolly, short and longleaf pines – but also includes some deciduous species like hickory, oak, southern sugar maple, sweetgum, and flowering dogwood. To the south, it meets with a wetter coastal forest called the Big Thicket. Texas also has riparian forests. This means the forests border rivers and streams and are tolerant of "wet feet" during flooding.

Wetlands
Texas marshes border lakes, rivers, and streams and have what are called emergent plants – plants, like grasses and sedges - that grow right out of the water. Marshes are very important wetlands providing habitat for animals but also protecting the land during floods by absorbing and filtering polluted runoff.

Deepwater swamps have standing freshwater most or all of the year with trees growing right out of the water – often baldcypress trees.

Saltwater marshes border the coast. The animals and plants in these marshes must be able to tolerate changing water levels with the tide as well as changing salinity, silt and storm surges. They are important for protecting the coast from flooding and for filtering pollutants.


Grasslands
The west Texas panhandle is made up of the high, arid Trans Pecos and Staked Plains. They are covered by shortgrass prairie and scrub oak shinnery – a dense growth of small trees. This dry grassland rises into one of the largest tabletop mesas in North America. Though dry, the region is home to many species of animals including pronghorn antelopes, coyotes, black-tailed prairie dogs, Texas horned lizards, prairie rattlesnakes, lesser prairie chickens, roadrunners, burrowing owls, ferruginous and Harris hawks, and curlews. This semi-desert grassland is covered in short to midgrass prairie and low shrubs, like creosote, acacia, mesquite, and cacti. There are also small trees, like scrub oak and pinyon-juniper.

The plains habitat of the Texas panhandle – as well as most of the grassland and prairie habitats throughout Texas – were originally made up of tallgrass and midgrass prairie communities with small scatterings of oak (or other trees) kept open by fires and grazing bison. They have all been changed from their original state though by more than a century of over-grazing, farming and the elimination of the prairie dog which slowly changed these habitats to drier scrubland with shortgrass prairie understory.

Much of the native grassland habitats have been altered over time by farming, grazing and human development, but areas of preservation throughout the state can illustrate what the habitats of the past were like.
