"No one will be able to claim that the identification of grasses, sedges, and rushes, which are of fundamental importance both environmentally and economically, are simply 'too difficult' after they have learned to use this excellent guide."--Peter Raven, President Emeritus, Missouri Botanical Garden
"Brown's homey and friendly illustrations, in combination with clear diagnostic photos, make for an important book that can be an entryway into the world of grasses."--Bryan Connolly, Framingham State University
"A significant aid and resource for those of us seeking to deepen our understanding of the tremendous diversity of plant life on this miraculous planet."--Ted Watt, Hitchcock Center for the Environment, Amherst MA

"Lauren Brown's Grasses: An Identification Guide is a trusted resource I've known for decades. It is wonderful to see a natural history masterpiece updated so beautifully. Grasses, Sedges, Rushes: An Identification Guide will take an honored place among my core reference books."--Patrick Lynch, author of A Field Guide to Cape Cod
"The classic practical guide to some of most ubiquitous - but most overlooked - of all the plants around us."--Peter Crane, author of Ginkgo: The Tree that Time Forgot
