      Habitat and ecology. The dune sandbur is an annual plant that grows in dunes, in loose sands, in thin woods, and in the open. It exhibits a sprawling habitat where it can be found. It can be found along coastal states, from Mississippi to New York. Where it grows primarily in August and September. MorphologyFamily: Poaceae.

Is there a relationship between herbaceous species richness and buffel grass (Cenchrus ciliaris)? Austral Ecol

      The grass is usually benefitted by the addition of fertilizer P. Good responses to N and especially PN have been frequently observed in Australia and South Africa, but in Tanzania, when grown under low rainfall and on good soil, the benefit of N on C. ciliaris was only seen during exceptionally wet seasons. Where harvester ants are a problem. Grasses: Biology and Ecology Introduction Grasses are the most important plant family on Earth. This statement is based on the following facts: There are more individual grass plants on Earth than any other type of terrestrial vegetation.

      Buffel grass [Cenchrus ciliaris L. syn. Pennisetum ciliare (L.) Link] is an exotic species that has been widely planted in Australian arid and semi-arid grazing lands, and has become an important resource for livestock. It establishes readily and has expanded into such a diversity of land types beyond grazing lands that it is also regarded as a serious environmental weed.

Cenchrus echinatus is a species of grass known by the common names southern sandbur, spiny sandbur, southern sandspur, and in Australia, Mossman River grass. It is native to North and South America.

Pandeya, H. Lieth. Cenchrus ciliaris is a grass native to southern Asia and much of Africa; it has been planted as a fodder and for erosion control in most warm arid and semi-arid regions of the world. It commonly escapes from plantings, especially into disturbed habitats, where it promotes a grass-fire cycle.
