Herbaceous plant

herbherbaceousherbs
In botany and ecology, graminoid refers to a herbaceous plant with a grass-like morphology, i.e. elongated culms with long, blade-like leaves.
The term is mainly applied to perennials, but in botany it may also refer to annuals or biennials, and include both forbs and graminoids.

Forb

forbsbroadleaf weedsflowering plants
They are contrasted to forbs, herbaceous plants without grass-like features.
A forb (sometimes spelled phorb) is an herbaceous flowering plant that is not a graminoid (grasses, sedges and rushes).

Cyperaceae

sedgesedgessedge family
The plants most often referred to include the families Poaceae (grasses in the strict sense), Cyperaceae (sedges), and Juncaceae (rushes).
The Cyperaceae are a family of monocotyledonous graminoid flowering plants known as sedges, which superficially resemble the closely related rushes and the more distantly related grasses.

Plant life-form

growth formlife-formgrowth forms
In colloquial speech, plants may be classified as trees, shrubs, herbs (forbs and graminoids), etc. The scientific use of life-form schemes emphasizes plant function in the ecosystem and that the same function or "adaptedness" to the environment may be achieved in a number of ways, i.e. plant species that are closely related phylogenetically may have widely different life-form, for example Adoxa and Sambucus are from the same family, but the former is a small herbaceous plant and the latter is a shrub or tree.

Espy Bog

Forested swamps, shrub swamps, and graminoid openings occur to the west of the lake.

Flora of the Sierra Nevada alpine zone

Broad-leaved, erect perennials constitute about 50% of the species, with perennial graminoid (grasses or grass-like plants) species next at about 21%, and plants growing as mats or cushions at about 11%.

List of C4 plants

While most are graminoids, other growth forms such as forbs, vines, shrubs, and even some trees and aquatic plants are also known among plants.

Fallow Hollow

These include a pond, a shrub swamp, a forested ravine, a graminoid/forb opening, and a deciduous seepy forest.

Agrostology

agrostologistAgrostologicgraminology
The grasslike species of the sedge family (Cyperaceae), the rush family (Juncaceae), and the bulrush or cattail family (Typhaceae) are often included with the true grasses in the category of graminoid, although strictly speaking these are not included within the study of agrostology.
