Landcover Change Assessment for a Nine County Area in NE Texas

Funding Agency: Blackland Research and Extension Center, Temple, Texas

Bottomland hardwood forests and wetlands are an integral part of this eco-region. This study was aimed at quantifying the changes that have taken place since 1974 in northeast Texas. Information about significant modifications or decline in the total area of these land cover types will aid environmental and resource managers to implement appropriate remedial measures.
