Grasses are the foremost plant family of prairies, savannas, barrens, many agricultural landscapes, lawns, and successional habitats throughout Wisconsin, yet they are notoriously difficult to identify. This field guide to 232 species of Wisconsin grasses includes more than 1,100 illustrations. Setting a new standard as the first new, illustrated midwestern grass identification manual to appear since the 1960s, it provides up-to-date, comprehensive information for naturalists, gardeners, landscapers, nursery horticulturalists, community restoration professionals, agronomists and biologists, and any outdoors lover.

The book includes:
• species descriptions and distribution maps for all 232 species
• more than 700 color photographs accompanying species descriptions
• drawings of most species
• chapters on grass morphology and grasses in natural communities
• keys to all species, including an illustrated key to genera
• a glossary of grass terminology.

Editorial Reviews

“[A] superior resource. . . . There are a number of features that set this book apart as a field guide. The first is a quick survey of the main types of grass flowers. . . . Another welcome feature . . . is a compilation of lists of grass species commonly encountered in varying habitats, as well as lists of species distinguished by unusual morphological characteristics. . . . The illustrations are wonderful. . . . I expect this book will quickly become the standard field manual for grass identification, not only in Wisconsin but for adjacent states and provinces.”—Ecological Restoration
