Texas Conservation Action Plan Ecoregions

Due to its size and geographic location, Texas has tremendous variation in climate, landscapes, and other factors influencing habitat diversity.  Texas is at the crossroad of eastern and western habitats as well as southern subtropical habitats and northern temperate ones.

Texas is generally divided into ten ecoregions: the Piney Woods, the Gulf Prairies and Marshes, the Post Oak Savanah, the Blackland Prairies, the Cross Timbers, the South Texas Plains, the Edwards Plateau, the Rolling Plains, the High Plains, and the Trans-Pecos.
