“While this is a comprehensive field guide to grasses, it is also designed to introduce the amateur botanist to this interesting group of plants.  Over 100 grasses have been selected as those which impinge on our daily lives; those species that we may use or, at least, see during out work or recreation.  The economic species, decorative species and weeds are described, and some temperate native species are also included.
The introductory chapters include a general discussion of the temperate region, the importance of grass, troublesome features of grasses, grasslands, grass morphology, and an illustrated aid to identification.  A glossary explains the technical terms used in the text.
Line drawings by expert botanical illustrators are used throughout the book to show the fine details of the subjects described.”
