Abstract

The work consists of descriptions of the subfamilies Festucoidea and Panicoideae, with keys to the tribes. Descriptions of the latter and keys to the genera form the major portion of the book which contains illustrations and diagrammatic representation of species distribution. The sequence of the tribes and genera is that described by the author in U.S. Dept. Agric. Bull. 772. 1920.
Information is supplied on the utilization of grasses, including their classification for use as fodder, hay, pasture, soiling, silage, wild pasture, soil binding and lawns. Sections on synonymy, unidentified names and a list of the names of persons for whom valid genera, species or varieties of grasses in the Manual have been named are appended.-M.H.
