About this book

Grasses of the Kruger National Park and Surrounding Bushveld presents some 60 of the grasses you are likely to see in the region. The first section defines grasses and discusses their biology and ecology; the middle section treats one species per page, providing photographs, line drawings, distribution maps, ID checklists, did you- know boxes and concise ID information, as well as the uses of grasses, their nutritive value, toxicity, veld management, etc. A final section discusses pasture management and the pests and diseases to which grasses are prone, and gives a round-up of the grazers and browsers that live off grass. A handy size, Grasses of the Kruger National Park and Surrounding Bushveld packs in detailed information about grasses, their place in the ecology and their key relationships with all other life forms in the region. Given the importance and impact of grasses on wildlife, this is an indispensible book for tourists, students and farmers in the region.
