Maps, History, and the Houston Environment

David Todd has explored deep wells of data to develop an atlas that richly describes the development of the Lone Star State dating from prehistory to the present.  He has digested colossal amounts of information from widely dispersed sources and, with the expert assistance of cartographer Jonathan Ogren, organized it into a comprehensive and comprehensible publication.

The result of their collaboration is a book with clear text accompanied by maps that chart patterns of settlement, the effect of urbanization and habitat fragmentation, water use, and the impact of Hurricane Ike, to mention a few of the sections.  In his illustrated lecture, he will share insights about the greater Houston region and will welcome questions about the state at large.

David Todd practiced as an environmental lawyer, founded the Conservation History Association of Texas, co-authored the Texas Legacy Project: Stories of Courage and Conservation, and is a rancher and sixth-generation Texan. Copies of the Texas Landscape Project: Nature and People atlas will be available for purchase at the course session. See registration form to reserve a copy in advance
