Native Grasses: Identification Handbook for Temperate Australia is an easy-to-use tool for identifying some of the most common native grasses in temperate Australia. The text describes 17 species in detail, covering general features as well as specific distinguishing features. Full-colour photographs of the whole plant, as well as close-ups of significant parts of the plants such as the seedhead, leaf blade, seed and ligule, accompany each species description.

The handbook provides advice on grassland management as well as highlighting the benefits of native grasses to the environment, agriculture, landscaping and upland hydrology.

Please note that this book is spiral-bound.

Grass Roots no.152 Aug/Sep 2002

“The utility of the booklet lies in its size and clarity of presentation. The photographs of diagnostic parts are wonderfully clear.”
