This identification guide to grasses of southern Africa relies primarily on the use of keys and descriptive information to aid the used in identifying grass species. It contains some of the best information needed to identify southern African grasses.

Keys to grass genera and species are provided, and in some instances also to easily confused taxa. For each species, a combination of useful characters is provided, and where applicable, line drawings of the spikelet or parts thereof accompany the identification key and description.

Species descriptions and distribution maps are important and add to the identification of grasses. One or more line drawings or a scanned herbarium specimen accompany the description of each genus known to occur in southern Africa. Anatomy vouchers and voucher specimens are listed for each species discussed.
