Présentation
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 where a huge number of staple crops and garden plants originated. 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 of 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, highly knowledgeable gardeners, and students of botany and horticulture.
