About this book

This part of the Flora of Bhutan is devoted to the single family Gramineae (also known as Poaceae). The grasses form the second largest family in the Flora of Bhutan being smaller than Orchidaceae (132 genera, 577 species) and slightly larger than Compositae (127 genera, 372 species). A total of 126 genera and 389 native and introduced species are treated here, of which 112 genera and 324 species have so far been recorded in Bhutan itself In addition to the interest arising from its size and diversity, Gramineae is also the most important family occurring in Bhutan in terms of its usefulness to man. The delimitation and arrangement of tribes and genera used here largely follow those of Clayton & Renvoize (1986).
