Publisher: New Zealand Plant Protection Society



This fully illustrated new guide has been published to meet popular demand; earlier guides to identification of grasses found in New Zealand are out of print, and this comprehensive new book also includes sedges and rushes.

This is a full colour identification guide for a wide audience, from the same publisher that produced An Illustrated Guide to Common Weeds of New Zealand. Features include an easy-to-follow format, with keys for each category (grass, sedge, rush) to aid identification, excellent colour photographs throughout, and a fully illustrated colour glossary. An Illustrated Guide to Common Grasses, Sedges and Rushes of New Zealand covers both native and introduced species so will appeal to a wide audience from field professionals to keen amateurs.

This title is available to purchase from Manaaki Whenua Press for NZ $59.99 (+ shipping).
