Abstract

The grass family (Poaceae) is one of the largest and most widespread families of flowering plants. The key in this book is based mainly on the type of inflorescence, and certain features of the spikelet. Based on similarities of these characters, grass genera are placed in one or more of the ten groups. This is not a natural key, therefore closely related grasses may key out in different groups. Table of Contents 1. How to identify a grass 2. Grass terminology 3. Types of grass inflorescence 4. Key to grass genera in North Queensland 5. Grass classification
