I like this publisher's books.I was pleased to find a book on Grasses that I know little about.I enjoyed the text and the distribution maps.The photos were only OK.Grass is difficult to photograph well. Either a small part is in focus , or there is movement blur etc.I continue to use ::OkavangoAs my first port of call. True it doesn't really cover this area, but I think it's grass photography is better and ups ales Ok on my IPad Kindle. The photos in the book under review often do not upscale well-- it brings out any weakness in the photographyI am pleased town both books and will be using both

The book is really good - the digital download is weak - the photographs are tiny and of very poor resolution.
