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.

Product Description: Steppes are giant  grasslands, defined not only by their plants but also by the geology and climate that created them. They comprise enormous areas on four continents and are the origin of a huge number of staple crops and garden plants. Despite the importance of these regions, both horticulturally and in terms of human evolution and development, remarkably little has been written about them. 
Steppes surveys all the world's steppe regions, including areas in North America, Africa, Asia, Europe, and South America, and highlights the plants in each, along with climatic and geological descriptions of each area. The plants of these regions have inspired some of the most important garden designers of our time, including Piet Oudolf, Tom Stuart Smith, Wolfgang Oehme, and James Van Sweden. 
This important reference is for professionals in botany and ecology, highly knowledgeable gardeners, and students of botany and horticulture.
