Publication details


On the NSW Slopes there are more than 450 species of native and introduced grasses. They are of major importance to farming and grazing industries, regional biodiversity and provide food and habitat for many native animals.

Grasses of the NSW slopes and adjacent plains provides an easy reference guide to the common grasses, so they can be recognised and managed appropriately. The book does not seek to cover all grasses in the area, but concentrates on the more widespread and common species which were recorded during surveys of the area.
