Native grasses are an important part of our natural environment.
Their commonality with plants of other landmasses, or uniqueness to our own continent, tell us much about our ancient origins and past episodes in Australia’s geological history.
Their contribution to a naturally-sustained landscape invites a closer study of their involvement in grass/soil synergies.
Their many propagation and survival strategies, that so often frustrate our efforts at domestication, are also a clue to how we might better engage with and manage them.
