1. Hoitt, Charles. Rangeland Biomass Utilization: Mesquite (Prosopis spp.) as a model for energy, food and fodder in Central and South Texas.

Degree: MEd, Agricultural Education, 2015, Texas State University – San Marcos

This study is a descriptive study of Mesquite (Prosopis spp.) as a useful crop in bio-energy and agroforestry and landowner interest in the utilization of mesquite. Mesquite historically had been seen as a useful plant until sometime after the 1980's attitudes shifted to it being a noxious invader of arid and semi-arid grasslands of the Southwestern United States. These attitudes combined with lack of knowledge by landowners in the Southern United States of native biomass and wood based biomass feedstocks for energy production lead to landowners being unlikely or neutral about the utilization of mesquite. As the United States government wants to shift to more sustainable "green energy", mesquite is poised to be an energy crop in Texas and with the world population ever expanding poised to be a source of energy and protein for both animal and human consumption. Advisors/Committee Members: Richardson, Reed (advisor), Mix, Ken (committee member), Morrish, Doug (committee member), Smith, Karen H. (committee member).
