Synopses & Reviews
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.
Accessible to those without botanical training yet respected by botanists for seventy-five years as a classic guide to the structure of grasses, this volume -- complete with a new chapter on bamboos -- has been thoroughly revised to reflect current scientific knowledge, nomenclature, and classification.
Includes bibliographical references (p. 115) and index.
