About Ecosystem Science and Management
The Ecosystem Science and Management (ESSM) unit of the Texas AgriLife Extension Service provides resources to the citizens of Texas that improve the science, education, and management of ecosystems. The state of Texas consists of a mixture of different ecological areas so we customize our outreach programs to provide relevant education to the area which is of importance to you. Whether you are trying to effectively manage the land in your West Texas ranch during a drought or attempting to begin a loblolly pine forest in East Texas, our specialists can provide you with the most current researched-based information. Through this partnership, we can improve the quality of our state's environment and of our everyday lives.
