Book Series with TAMU Press

Series Editor

HRI has been proud to partner with the Texas A&M University Press on two book series covering a range of topics throughout Texas and the Gulf coast.  Late HRI Endowed Chair for Biodiversity Dr. Wes Tunnell was the founding editor of these collections up until his passing in July 2015.  Former HRI Senior Executive Director and HRI Chair for Gulf Strategies Dr. Larry McKinney now serves as the Series Editor for both collections.


The Harte Research Institute for Gulf of Mexico Studies Series, started in 2007, focuses on the entire Gulf of Mexico. Manuscripts concerning science, policy, and management of large portions or the entire Gulf are welcome for consideration.  HRI sponsored research, faculty, and associates have priority within this series.
