Cynodon

genus of grasses in the Poaceae family; they may contain cyanogenetic glycosides, and acute cyanide poisoning (geilsiekte) and goiter have been attributed to them. All of the grasses are very widespread and enjoy good reputations as pasture grass. Includes C. aethiopicus (Nkuru grass), C. dactylon (couch grass, Bermuda grass), C. incompletus (blue couch), C. nlemfuensis (C. plectostachyus, Naivasha stargrass).

Relative Frequency of Habitats--Based on results of principal-components analysis and qualitative data, I subdivided the drainage system into the following habitats: emergent cattails (thick cattails), prairie sedge meadows (thick cover of grasses, sedges, rushes), forest (thick cover by over-story canopy), cattail-forest transition (cattail-dominated channel with minimal but significant cover by over-story canopy), pioneer mudflat (high erosion potential and bank-side vegetation sparse and dominated by early succession taxa), and turf-grass (bank-side cover of Bermuda grass Cynodon dactylon).
the 1Br spikelets are initiated basipetally and end in a microtip (truncated long branch); while in other cases, such as in species of Cynodon, the 1Br spikelets are initiated amphipetally and end in a terminal spikelet (Liu et al.
