Praise

“An affordable and valuable addition to any horticulturist’s bookshelf. . . . [This book makes] the seemingly insurmountable complexity of the grass inflorescence accessible to horticulture students and botanists alike. . . . Many of the illustrations are from the first edition, and are exquisite in their detail and clarity.”—HortScience

“Beautifully illustrated and a handy companion to a botanical garden.”—New Scientist

“A new edition of the classic botanical introduction to agrostology covering the major groups of grasses found in the Americas. Truly a standard, Chase first published the guide in 1902 and was considered the preeminent agrostologist of American grasses at the time of her death in 1963.”—SciTech Book News
