Name those grasses: identifying grasses, sedges and rushes.
With clear text, and detailed illustrations and photographs, this book describes the structure of Grasses and similar groups, explains the language used in their description, and describes the process of identification. It will greatly facilitate the successful use of the standard identification manuals available for most parts of the world. The drawings and photographs, emphasising structural details, illustrate 131 species of Grasses, 38 Sedges, 16 Rushes, 16 Restios, Rope-rushes and allies, and 2 species of Typha (Bulrushes). Covering over 200 species, this will assist with the recognition of many common plants along roadsides or in pastures.
The procedure for plant identification is the same world-wide so the book is globally relevant, however the illustrations and photographs mostly depict species that are common in temperate parts of the world.
New South Wales
Grasses of NSW
The intrinsic value of our native grasslands is increasingly more appreciated, not least because grasses are the basis of our grazing industries. Grasses of New South Wales, now in a fourth, expanded edition, is designed to assist in the identification of all the grasses growing in the State. This book now contains more than twice the information of the earlier versions. It has introductory chapters on many aspects of grass biology and the mysterious world of keys and botanical nomenclature. Species descriptions and more illustrations are important additions to the text, as are updated name changes and new records. The layout and language used has been carefully chosen in order to appeal to as wide an audience as possible. This includes arranging genera and species alphabetically, and while technical terms cannot be avoided altogether, these are all fully explained in an extensive illustrated glossary.
