Population Ecology of Silphium albiflorum (white rosinweed)
Bruce Benz, Biology Professor at Texas Wesleyan University

Did you know that white rosinweed (Silphium albiflorum) is an endemic Texas species with a limited range globally & is found only in north central Texas? Bruce has coordinated a long-term population ecology study of white rosinweed at Tandy Hills Natural Area & other sites within its limited range.

Texas Wesleyan University is organizing an all-day event at Tandy Hills to celebrate Earth Day 2020 on Saturday, April 18.  The event will sponsor an invasive plant species survey to photo-document invasives at 100 precise locations. Invasive species at Tandy Hills threatens the existing population of white rosinweed.

    How do I apply for the GRIP? I am in Clay County, Texas and really need some help with my land. I have deer, quail, doves, and other wildlife, but the grass is not very good, and some real cactus problems in areas. Everything is organic.
