Lipscomb, is one of the co-authors of the Illustrated Flora of North Central Texas (1999), a comprehensive guide to a large portion of the diverse plant life of Texas. Lipscomb is also a co-author of a three-volume flora, the Illustrated Flora of East Texas [Vol. 1, 2006, 1612 pp]. He is co-author of the 392 page, Ferns and Lycophytes of Texas (Feb 2014).
