Frolik, A. L. & Keim, F. D. (1938). Common native grasses of Nebraska (University of Nebraska Agricultural Experiment Station No. 59)
Twenty-four native grasses that are the most important and most generally distributed in Nebraska are described and illustrated in this circular. Information concerning their distribution and economic value is given. Anyone interested in learning to identify the common native grasses should be able to do so by comparing plant specimens with the illustrations and descriptions herein presented. The work of identifying grasses may seem technical and limited only to botanists or those with similar training. Nearly anyone, however, can learn to identify many of the native grasses if willing to spend a little time and effort.
