About this product
- DescriptionSince the publication of the first edition of Grasses: Panicum to Danthonia in 1973, twenty additional taxa of grasses have been discovered in Illiis that are properly placed in this volume. In addition, numerous menclatural changes have occurred for plants already kwn from the state, and many distributional records have been added. This second edition updates the status of grasses in Illiis. Paul W. Nelson has provided illustrations for all of the additions.Because the nature of grass structures is generally so different from that of other flowering plants, a special termilogy is applied to them. In his introduction, Robert H. Mohlenbrock cites these terms, with descriptions that make the identification of unkwn specimens possible. Mohlenbrock s division of the grass family into subfamilies and tribes is a major departure from the sequence usually found in most floristic works in North America.Synyms that have been applied to species in the rtheastern United States are given under each species. A description based primarily on Illiis material covers the more important features of the species. The common namesPaflic Grass, Billion Dollar Grass or Japanese Millett, Thread Love Grass, and Goose Grassare the ones used locally in the state. The habitat designation and dot maps showing county distribution of each grass are provided only for grasses in Illiis, but the overall range for each species is also given.
