Synopsis: Steppes—semi-arid biomes dominated by forbs, grasses, and grass-like species, and characterized by extremes of cold and heat—occupy enormous areas on four continents. Yet these ecosystems are among the least studied on our planet. Given that the birth and evolution of human beings have been so intimately interwoven with steppe regions, it is amazing that so few attempts have been made to compare and quantify the features of these regions. In this ground-breaking volume, five leading voices in horticulture—all staff members of Denver Botanic Gardens—examine the plants, climate, geology, and geography of the world’s steppes: central Asia, central and intermountain North America, Patagonia, and South Africa. Drawing upon their first-hand experience, the writers illuminate the distinctive features of each region, with a particular emphasis on the striking similarities between their floras. Each chapter includes a primer of species of horticultural interest—a rich resource for readers with an interest in steppe plants.

From the Back Cover: The first comprehensive overview of the world’s four steppe regions, this important volume surveys the plants, climate, geology, and geography of the steppes of North America, Eurasia, Patagonia, and South Africa. Given the stack realities of climate change, it is imperative that we gain a better knowledge of these regions, characterized by extremes of heat and cold and by limited rainfall. The perspectives offered by this book will enrich the reader’s understanding and appreciation of these fascinating but fragile landscapes.
