Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Lynn G. Clark is Associate Professor of Botany at Iowa State University. Richard W. Pohl (1916-1993), Distinguished Professor Emeritus of Botany at Iowa State University and author of How to Know the Grasses (3d ed. 1978), was regarded as the foremost authority on American grasses.

Book News Annotation:

A new edition of the classic botanical introduction to agrostology covering the major groups of grasses found in the Americas. The volume surveys basic vegetative and reproductive parts and then in the remaining 11 lessons describes increasingly more complex spikelet and inflorescence varieties, including the taxonomic context and structure. Each grass type is illustrated by detailed line drawings. The revised edition includes a new section on bamboos and reflects changes in nomenclature and classification made since the last 1959 publication. Truly a standard, Chase first published the guide in 1902 and was considered the preeminent agrostologist of American grasses at the time of her death in 1963.
