Briza Publications is an independent publishing house based in Gauteng, South Africa. It was started in 1990 with the sole purpose of publishing an identification guide on grasses and now this book, Guide to Grasses of southern Africa is in its third edition as a perennial bestseller.

From these humble beginnings as a seedling, Briza has blossomed into a leading publisher of natural history and botany books in South Africa.

Our logo, the Briza seed, is a visual representation our growth and also a constant reminder to keep adapting and growing alongside our wonderfully diverse natural heritage.
