About this book

Are you overwhelmed by Agrostis? Confused by Carex? Jittery about your Juncus?

All proceeds from this book go to saving rare species in the UK.

Looks to be good
By Josh 19 May 2016 Unconfirmed Purchase Written for Spiralbound

A small (smaller than I was expecting and much friendlier to being taken out for the day), ring bound book with a very clear layout, and a useful guide to grasses found in different locations e.g. uplands, woodlands, acidic grasslands etc. Very clear images and diagrams, would definitely recommend to a beginner in grass ID and for a go-to field guide.
