About this book The biology of grasses is described and illustrated through the use of many different grass genera and species, drawn from temperate, tropical and circumpolar regions.
Grasses are put to a multitude of uses by those involved in agriculture and recreation. They are also of importance to environmental biologists, for example those involved in restorative ecology. In this book the biology of grasses is illustrated by many different grass genera and species, drawn from both temperate and tropical zones.
About this book Combines new findings on morphological aspects, the latest data on gene function in grasses, and the interaction of grasses with their habitats 45% of all arable land is covered by five grass crops: wheat, maize, rice, barley and sugar cane.
About this book. Covering 30 species, this new fold-out chart should enable everyone to put a name to some of the most common species of grass found in Britain and Ireland. A special feature of this chart is a simple-to-use lateral key to enable users to make the quick identification quickly. This pocket-sized book includes sections on world distribution and economic importance; taxonomy and nomenclature; and growth, development and morphology of grasses.
The major part of the book comprises descriptions of species occurring in the German Democratic Republic, illustrated by line drawings, and a key to their identification.
Grasses and Grassland Ecology provides an ecologically orientated introduction to this influential group of plants, summarizing the most recent scientific research in ecology and agriculture in the context of the older, classic literature. Grasses: Biology and Ecology Introduction Grasses are the most important plant family on Earth.
This statement is based on the following facts: There are more individual grass plants on Earth than any other type of terrestrial vegetation. They have the highest biomass of all plants, i.e. their combined weight is. This is a comprehensive identification guide for grasses that gives details of their study and how to identify them complete with a number of keys for floristic, vegetative and seed identification as well as a draft key to help distinguish between the sub-species of Festuca rubra (Red Fescue)/5(2).
Focusing on the color, shape, and texture of the plants, and avoiding the technicalities presented by most botanical guides, this first and only popular book on the subject provides a lively.
