New at HOORC's Library: grasses and grassland ecology
In this publication, the reader is given an ecologically orientated introduction to this influential group of plants, summarizing the most recent scientific research in ecology and agriculture in the context of the older, classic literature. The subject has a wide coverage in morphology, anatomy, physiology and systematics of grasses, their population, community and ecosystem ecology, their global distribution, and the effects of disturbance and grassland management. The book is now available in the HOORC Library.
