For people presently working as turfgrass managers and for students going into that field or a related one such as equipment manufacturing or seed production, Emmons (plant science, State U. of New York- Cobleskill) discusses the establishment and maintenance practices used by success managers, and the relevant scientific theory and practical management skills. He notes no dates for the earlier edition, but here revises information on grasses for warm and cool seasons, integrated pest management, and managing golf courses. He also includes a new appendix of Web sites. Annotation c. Book News, Inc., Portland, OR (booknews.com)
