Sports Turf and Amenity Grasses is a comprehensive reference for anyone involved with the selection and maintenance of grasses used in sports and amenity areas in all areas. It provides a means to identify these grasses through keys, descriptions and photographs, and also provides detailed information on sowing, oversowing, stolonising and mowing heights.
The performance of each grass is assessed and detailed comments made on positive and negative aspects of its use. A grass’s tolerance to high temperature, frost, drought, shade, wet soil, salinity, low soil fertility, wear and close mowing is given in a table with each aspect rated. Further comments are made on how well it combines with particular grasses and on issues such as seedling vigour and sowing times.

Ian H Chivers is a private consultant and grass breeder/seed producer based in Melbourne, Victoria, Australia. He has worked in many parts of the world with both the cool season and warm season grasses. His particular expertise is in breeding and selection programmes for the less-well known grasses. This has led to the commercialisation of several species previously unknown for turf use. Within those species his work has led to the development of several varieties. Ian is currently a Board member of the International Turfgrass Society, a contributor to several references and commonly seen as a conference speaker.Review:
