[After the publication of The Monocotyledons Arber continued her research into this group, concentrating her research into the Gramineae family of plants. This led to the publication of this, her final book concerning plant morphology. In this book Arber described the life cycles, embryology and reproductive and vegetative cycles of cereals, grasses and bamboo using comparative anatomical analysis of these plants. Recognising the importance of these plants to the development of human societies, Arber begins this study with the history of these plants in relation to humans, with "the more strictly botanical aspect is treated as developing out of the humansistic".]
