Comprising approximately 800 genera and thousands of species of grasses, the entries in this authoritative reference list the genus name, synonyms and common names, etymology, geographical distribution, description, and list of species with uses and common names. In addition, the author includes vernacular names, rejected names, and orthographic variants where available.
