Grasses: a handbook for use in the field and laboratory
by H. Marshall Ward
Publisher: Cambridge University Press 1908
Number of pages: 222
The book is not intended to be a complete manual of grasses, but to be an account of our common native species, so arranged that the student may learn how to closely observe and deal with the distinctive characters of these remarkable plants when such problems as the botanical analysis of a meadow or pasture, of hay, of weeds, or of 'seed' grasses are presented, as well as when investigating questions of more abstract scientific nature.
