This identification guide on CD-ROM allows you to identify 230 grasses using only plant parts visible to the naked eye. Version 2.1 includes native perennials used in restoration. The intuitive keys offer a great way of self-tutoring on grass identification. It includes many photos and a "forgiveness factor" that allows you to reach the correct species even if you make a mistake in the key. PC format.
If you purchased the earlier version, with 206 species and no natives, you may upgrade to the new version for $15. Call Cal-IPC for details.
