View larger image of 'Grass Aloes in the South African Veld'Craib, Charles -  Grass Aloes in the South African Veld
Quite a long introduction section describes not only the expected aspects of taxonomy, growth cycles, pollination and seed dispersal, but also the role of fire and changes to habitat, but also the background to the botanical illustration and habitat sketches. Each species is given a very comprehensive description including habitats, growth cycle and cultivation, and illustrated with a beautiful full page colour botanical art illustration by Gillian Condy. On heavier paper than the Cotyledon book and in a slip case. Again a magnificent Umdaus Press production. 2005 12 ¾ x 9 ¼ 156 pages
