About this book

There are 190 native species and 230 naturalised grasses in New Zealand, and this Flora is about them. The Flora of New Zealand, Volume 5 was first published in 2000 and it has been revised and updated in this new second edition a decade later.

Included are formal nomenclature, descriptions, distribution records, ecological information, and keys to genera. Appropriate revisions, DNA phylogenies, or taxonomic opinions published up to 30 June 2009 are included in this second edition. The structure is that of the main text of the 2000 edition with the addition of simple corrections of errors and some changes that could easily be made within the text. Issues relating to modern nomenclature and generic placement are treated in the Addenda.

The Flora features excellent line drawings by Sabrina Malcolm and colour illustrations by Keith West, with photographs by Peter Johnson. Flora of New Zealand, Volume 5 is an identification manual intended for all who are involved with grasses – plant and animal ecologists, farmers, commercial managers, weed controllers, conservationists, horticulturists, land-use specialists and soil conservators.
