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.
