Review By: SA Garden - June 2012

Grasses are probably on of the most important plant families on earth. They were the first food plants to be cultivated by man. Grass crops, such as maize, wheat, rice and sugar cane, are still our most important source of energy. Grass is also an essential food source for farm animals and the enormous herds of grazing animals in the wild. This book is a comprehensive identification guide to the common grasses of Southern Africa that includes descriptions and illustrations of over 320 important grasses. It also features an easy-to-use identification key, over 1000 full colour photographs, common names of grasses in indigenous languages and icons that provide information at a glance.
