This new volume, Morphoanatomical Atlas of Grass Leaves, Culms, and Caryopses, features the studied anatomical details of different parts of 100 wild grass species and provides a comprehensive overview of existing knowledge. Each of the three sections of the volume (leaf grass, culm, and caryopses) discusses and illustrates the diagnostic histological features, along with statistical analyses on the quantitative and qualitative data. The descriptions of these grasses, particularly those growing in the grasslands of the Panchmahal and Dahod districts of India, are supplemented with microphotographs and keys for the taxa concentrate upon diagnostic characters above the rank of genus, which will be helpful for the easy identification of the grasses, even in their vegetative stages before flowering. The cluster analysis provides uses the statistical analysis program Minitab for each part on the basis of the diagnostic features.
Due to the shortage of diagnostic morphological characteristics of leaf grass, culm, and caryopses, the study of complementary characters, like the anatomical features, has favored the clarification of taxonomic relationships between species and their correct identification.
