Dr. Deb is the author of "Poison Plants in the Pasture: A Horse Owner's Guide" (2005, Equine Studies Institute Publishing). This 500-page compendium on CD-Rom is an encyclopedic work intended to teach horse owners to identify plants growing in their pastures which are toxic or otherwise harmful to horses.

The images in this gallery represent both macro- and micro-photography. They show the beauty and variety of both toxic and nontoxic grasses.We hope you enjoy looking at this grouping while appreciating the beautiful results of Dr. Deb's work in field photography. Many of these images are currently in use (with Dr. Deb's permission) by botany professors in England, Canada, Australia and the U.S. to teach college-level courses in grass identification.
