Acceptance : Accepted
Taxon Profile     (Last Modified On 8/25/2014)
Fl. Madagasc.: unpublished
APG website treatment: Poaceae
Notes:

Alternate name Gramineae. Our treatment of the family is based on the draft list of accepted species and synonyms produced by Emmet Judziewicz (UWSP). Information on the Bamboos was provided by Soejatmi Dransfield (formerly K). We acknowledge both contributions with gratitude.

Link to World Grass checklist.

Many introduced grasses are cultivated as crops, land stabilisers, ornamentals and as lawns and recreational fields, and many of these have become at least locally naturalized. The crop species are of considerable economical importance in Madagascar, the most important of which are : rice (Oryza sativa), maize (Zea mays), sugarcane (Saccharum officinarum)  and wheat (Triticum aestivum).

Family and Genus Data:

The data in this table are derived from the corresponding Genus and Species pages. The data provide a summary of the treatment presented in the published parts of the Flore de Madagascar et des Comores, together with a summary of the data presented here in the Madagascar Catalogue, which includes information on the number of species currently accepted, and an estimate of the number of undescribed species for the genera for which a recent taxonomic evaluation has been conducted. The number of accepted species is added to the estimate of undescribed species to provide an estimated total. Place cursor over headers marked [+] for further explanation of the column contents.
