Grasses of the Kruger National Park and Surrounding Bushveld, Did You Know? Nature series by Veronica Roodt
The idea of this book is to provide a handy, easy-to-use guidebook for tour guides, tourists and students. The aim was to keep the book as 'travel friendly' as possible, ideal for game walks and an easy size to carry in a suitcase. A small pocket- sized book limits the amount of information and the size of the photographs. A compromise was therefore reached by limiting the number of pages to one page per grass to keep the book thin.
There are two photographs of each grass, one of the inflorescence and one of the complete grass with a ruler for size. The size is of the inflorescence is indicated on the photograph.
Additionally, there is a line drawing of each grass, to show details that are often difficult to show on a photograph. The text is short and to the point, providing the essential information to establish with one glance if the grass is desirable or not.
Information is provided on its growth form, ecological status, successional status, its nutritive value, palatability, its habitat, preferred soil type and its value as an indicator species.
On each page is a 'Did you know?' section with some interesting facts and/or uses.
Distribution maps for the southern African subregion accompanies each grass. This will make the book useful in other areas as well. Most grasses discussed in this book occur all over southern Africa.
The book is colour-coded for quick reference and the colour codes are indicated in the contents for cross referencing purpose.
The book is divided into three sections. The first section is the introduction, which explains the terms used in the text, such as 'ecological status', 'successional status', 'decreaser', 'sub-climax grass', etc. The second section is the identification section. The last section is a short summary of the most important pasture management strategies, pasture pests and a short summary of the grazers.
