During last three to four years we studied various aspects of woody plant species in Forest Science School, Universidad de Nuevo Leon, UANL, Mexico. The present study describes salient characteristics of habitat, leaf morphology, wood anatomy, wood density and few eco-physiological traits of major woody plant species of Tamaulipan Thornscrub, at Linares, Northeastern Mexico. This will serve as guide to know about all these traits for the students, researchers and foresters to unveil the various aspects of these woody species of high economic importance and ecological importance.
