Abstract

The grass species included in this book are placed into one of ten groups based mainly on the type of inflorescence, and on certain features of the spikelet. This is not a natural key, therefore species in the same genus may key out into different groups.

The following information is given under each genus: • Derivation of the genus name • Description of the genus, including habit, inflorescence and spikelet morphology, and any other distinguishing features • Subfamily and tribe – more information about grass classification is given in the Part A • World and Australian species numbers • Key to species when there is more than one species
