The grass family, known as Poaceae, is probably the most important plant family on earth.   Grasses were the first food plants to be cultivated by man.  Grain crops , such as maize, wheat, rice and sugarcane( all grasses), are still our most important source of energy.  The identification of grasses becomes important during land management as various grass species differ in their grazing value and other ecological functions.  This book is the most comprehensive colour identification color guide to the common grasses of southern Africa.
