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