About this book

A documented plea for a re-evaluation of spontaneous grasses, this book contains profiles of 43 temperate forage species, many of which are regaining importance in the context of agricultural intensification. Many of these grasses are also used in lawns, garden borders, sport fields, flower meadows and reclamation land. Amply illustrated, each profile includes a description of the plant, its ecological requirements, its agronomic characteristics and its diverse uses, including innovative and unusual. Wild and sown grasses is an invaluable work of reference for students of agriculture, lecturers, researchers, consultants, ecologists, nature conservationists and other involved in the diverse uses of grass communities.
