Flora of North America

  • Grasses constitute the most widespread plant family, and also the most economically important. Many languages have a word for grasslands.
  • There has been no comprehensive treatment of North American grasses in 50 years, but they are economically important in almost every part of the region
  • Almost every species is illustrated, the illustrations being designed to portray the diagnostic characteristics for each species
  • It will be the first North American flora to include a formal taxonomic treatment of some of the many bamboos cultivated in North America
