Andrew Thomson is the author of Bridge to the Gods: Tales from Kyushu. That very book happens to be sitting beside my computer as I write this. I’m bringing it to read this weekend when I’ll be on a small island in the Andaman Sea.
I completely forgot a few great articles when I put together this list of articles that are specifically not about turfgrass.
One of those I forgot is Evidence for the existence of three primary strategies in plants and its relevance to ecological and evolutionary theory.
Yesterday I saw that Erwan Le Cocq was interested in reading scientific articles and was welcoming recommendations. I remembered that I had put together this eclectic reference list to include in my Turfgrass Science and Greenkeeping book.
Regular readers of this blog will have seen various posts about grass growth rate and the routine measurement of clipping volume. I’ve taken many of those posts, some new material, and a couple reports, and put them together into a book.
I moved my books to a different room in my home office earlier this month.
One of those books contains this strongly-worded sentence.
These “disasters,” “expensive corrective measures,” and “deterioration of good golfing conditions” are completely avoidable.
Some years ago I shared some articles that I often referred to or recommended, and I called that Five articles every greenkeeper should read. As I look at this list of articles now, I’m reminded of the familiar maxim about understanding the rules before breaking them.
