This electronic reference guide offers a unique overview of the etymology of names used in grasses. The etymological dictionary of grasses took over 8 years to compile and is without doubt the most complete overview presently in existence. The main part of this program is formed by an interactive dictionary that contains more than 9,100 names, thoroughly led back to their roots and explained by a leading authority in the field. A glossary of basic grass terminology is included. The introduction section provides in depth information on the naming and taxonomy of grasses. Handy search tools allow for a quick lookup; hyperlinking warrants easy point and click navigation through and between the various parts of this program. This CD-ROM is a must for scientists and students and all working in and concerned with, herbariums.
