Product Details


“This book reviews and brings together all that is known about the bamboos native to the New World, including their scientific descriptions, native habitats, and uses, as well as cultural practices for growing them as crops. It points out that bamboos originate and are useful outside of Asia. . . . The authors have done a fine job, and their book is the best I have read on the subject.”—Richard Haubrich, Professor Emeritus, University of California at San Diego

“Until now, it has been difficult to find information about American bamboos. Here’s the book to bridge the gap, with numerous color photos and extensive details on the structure, evolution, ecology, and diversity of American bamboos. An identification key sorts species, giving very complete descriptions, habitat, range maps, and references. The authors discuss the conservation value, human uses, cultivation, and propagation of the bamboos.”—Whole Earth
