Paul W. Cox is a consulting botanist and lecturer, drawing from 3 decades of Southwestern United States Botany.

His experience began in the 1970's with research at the Heard Natural History Museum. By invitation, he served as Horticulturist for the City of San Antonio, then supervisor of the Botanical Gardens where he led the construction and development of this reknowned garden. Over the next 30 years, he served as interim Director and Assistant Director, continuing his leadership and development of the Garden's resources and programs.

Today, Paul continues to serve the botanical community through his writing, lectures and consulting for legal, municipal, commercial and residential clients.
