Product Overview

Volume 43 of the highly acclaimed Flora of Australia series provides an introduction to the Poaceae (Grasses). It gives an overview of this important family and provides a comprehensive introduction to grass biology in Australia.

Essays by a team of leading scientists review the latest Australian research on phylogeny, classification, anatomy, physiology, ecology, palaeobotany, and biogeography of Australian grasses. A further chapter gives a detailed synopsis of the economic attributes of grasses on a genus by genus basis.

Identification keys and a well-illustrated guide to the parts of a grass provide the means to identify grasses to genus level. The volume also includes an atlas with over 1400 maps showing nation-wide distributions of the native and naturalised species currently recognised as occurring in Australia.

This introductory volume will be a valuable reference to all those with a professional interest in the biology and distribution of grasses in Australia.
