Title: Vertebrate richness and biogeography in the Big Thicket of Texas

Author: MacRoberts, Michael H; MacRoberts, Barbara R.; Rudolph, D. Craig;

Date: 2010

Source: American Midland Naturalist 164(1):37-43

Publication Series: Scientific Journal (JRNL)

Description: The Big Thicket of Texas has been described as rich in species and a “crossroads:” a place where organisms from many different regions meet. We examine the species richness and regional affiliations of Big Thicket vertebrates. We found that the Big Thicket is neither exceptionally rich in vertebrates nor is it a crossroads for vertebrates. Its vertebrate fauna is predominantly eastern.

Keywords: Big Thicket, Texas, vertebrates, richness
