Collins Pocket Guide to Grasses, Sedges, Rushes and Ferns by Richard Fitter, Alastair Fitter, Ann Farrer (Illustrator)

Review

This is a photographic guide to the wild grasses and ferns of Britain and Northern Europe. A good all round field guide to grasses, sedges & rushes. Clear colour illustrations and concise informative descriptions. I do not hesitate in recommending this book for general field use.

Reviewer

A reader Clear colour illustrations and concise informative descriptions. The Key is a little peculiar though proves useful when looking for prompts according to habitat types i.e., heath, wetlands, chalk etc. This guide is limited when you have to differentiate between very similar species and sub-species - for more detailed work Hubbard or Francis Rose may prove more useful. However I do not hesitate in recommending this book for general field use, it is more appealing to the eye than Hubbard !
