The grass family is of prime agricultural importance and includes all cereal crops of the world, forage grasses which feed farm animals, sugarcane which is a major industrial raw material, and bamboos which have a multitude of uses. However, grasses are also of inherent interest to biologists, incorporating both superficial simplicity and evolutionary innovation. This book provides an introduction to the subject, covering structure, development, reproduction, breeding mechanisms, taxonomic utility, domestication, and grasses as weeds. It covers both the temperate and tropical zones, and is well illustrated with original drawings and photographs. The book is aimed at biology, agriculture and horticulture students seeking a concise overview of the subject.
