Manual of Grasses for North America
To be published initially as volume 24and 25 in the Flora of North America series

_____________________________________________________________________________

Caveat Emptor: The game is not over until the fat lady sings. Similarly, the taxa to be included in the Flora volumes will be fixed when the manuscript is submitted to the press, not earlier. The Manual, when that comes out, will differ again if there is evidence that argues for a change in some of the treatments or inclusion of additional species. We have already added comments to the online versions of some of the treatments in FNA 25.

We have made the basic information in FNA 25 available online. We are also making the treatments for FNA 24 available online, once the author gives his or her approval for doing so. A major reason for doing this is to solicit feedback. If you have comments on any of the material presented, please Email them to mary@biology.usu.edu.
