“In this book, for the first time in Australia, all of a State’s grasses have been carefully drawn to show the salient features.   In addition to more than 450 line drawings, there are 20 coloured paintings illustrating typical members of each of the tribes.
Descriptions, along with the illustrations and keys, provide the essential information to confirm the identity of each grass.  There are ecological notes provided by many field workers and a brief statement of distribution, including the plant’s occurrence elsewhere in Australia and overseas.
The introduction provides background to plant structure.  Terminology has been kept simple as possible, while reference to the well-illustrated glossary should explain any terms not familiar to users.”
