Product Description

This is the first and only popular guide to the identification of the most ubiquitous plants in North America - the grasses we set foot on every day. Avoiding the technicalities of most botanical guides, Grasses focuses on the color, shape, and texture of the plants. The 386 drawings by the author are, in the words of Scientific American, "as beautiful as they are exact." The descriptions not only tell how to identify but provide a lively account of their history, ecology, and uses. The book covers 135 species, from familiar lawn grasses such as bluegrass and the all-too-common crabgrass to more exotic species such as barberpole sedge, purple love grass, and toad rush. Although the book concentrates on grasses of the Northeast and Midwest, it can be used anywhere in the country.
