Useful Wild Plants, Inc. cover
Description Founded in 1971, the Useful Wild Plants Project was conceived as a means to conserve the rich legacy of a botanical domain that spans Texas and encompasses the southern two-thirds of the United States and the northern third of Mexico. This region is home to a vast and diverse set of vascular plant species that hold thousands of yet unknown applications to food production, medicine, and commodity production. As the only project of its kind world-wide, the Useful Wild Plants Project is currently working to complete a set of encyclopedias and other informational resources that comprehensively present the uses and attributes of these species. The knowledge compiled will be accessible and applicable to anyone with a vested interest in creating a sustainable future.
