Publisher Description

On the Coast of NSW there are a large number (approximately 450 species) of native and naturalised grasses. These grasses are the dominant component of pastures in the area and are therefore of major importance to the grazing industries on the coast. They are also of value as they form a significant component of the coast’s biodiversity and provide food and habitat for many native animals. On the other hand not all grasses are desirable.  Some are highly invasive weed species in all situations where others may be considered valuable pasture species while also being considered threatening species in conservation areas.

The purpose of this book is to provide an easy reference guide to the common grasses, so they can be recognised and managed appropriately. The book does not seek to cover all grasses in the area, but to concentrate on the more widespread and common species which were recorded by the authors and collaborators in pasture surveys, during Paddock Plant field days, or been brought in by landholders for identification. These have been further supplemented by the Royal Botanic Garden’s collection records.

Each grass is described by several images, a guide to distribution, and some points on importance and management.
