About: Grasses of Namibia

Produced by the National Botanical Research Institute (NBRI) of Namibia, this popular guide to grasses of Namibia was compiled by the late Dr. M. A. N. Müller in 1984. The new edition increases the number of Namibian grasses covered to 135 species and subspecies and aimes at beeing used by farmers, extension workers, scientists and students alike. It provides much-needed information on the grazeable vegetation of Namibia. The majority of these grasses are important agriculturally, whether as pioneers, subclimax or climax grasses. Pioneer grasses are usually annuals that have the ability to establish themselves in unfavourable conditions on bare or over-grazed land, and in doing so to make the environment more conducive to the subsequent establishment of perennial grasses. As the veld recovers it progresses through several stages of stabilisation in which the subclimax grasses play a role, until a stage is reached when climax grasses begin to appear. This climax stage is the ideal condition and the one towards which management should always be directed. A real attempt has been made to ensure that this publication is both practical and appealing. An updated and improved key for the identification of those grass genera included in Grasses of Namibia has been provided. The images were line-drawn by Blythe Loutit, Wilma Roux and Wendy Hitchkock
