Other common names include Boer lovegrass, curved lovegrass, Catalina lovegrass, and African lovegrass.

Several herbivores feed on lovegrass, be they invertebrates - e.g. Lepidoptera caterpillars such as those of the Zabulon Skipper (Poanes zabulon) - or vertebrates, such as the extinct Bluebuck (Hippotragus leucophaeus).
With the creation of the National Institute of Agricultural Technology (INTA), in 1956 and its organization in 1958 the station became a part of it, contributing to the development of the region with the diffusion of weeping lovegrass and conservation practices, among other contributions.
Juvenile birds apparently need dense vegetation to hide in during fledging; the uncommon native sacaton grass Sporobolus wrightii is preferred, but stands of introduced non-native Lehmann lovegrass (Eragrostis lehmanniana) and Boer lovegrass (E. curvula var.
The shores and channels support samphire, lignum, canegrass and other grasses, with black-box and other riparian woodland communities which flood seasonally.
The shallow margins of the overflow lakes are studded with dead Black Box trees while the shores are dominated by Bluerod and Sandhill Canegrass.
The adjacent gibber plains are sparsely covered with Mitchell grass, while the dune country has species of Dodonaea, Sandhill Wattle and Sandhill Canegrass.
The Queensland section, in the state's far southwestern corner, is protected as the 10, 000-sq-km Simpson Desert National Park, and is a remote, arid landscape of more than a thousand red sand dunes, spinifex and canegrass.
It preferred to live in sandy and loamy deserts, sandplains and dunes covered with spinifex, mulga, zygochloa canegrass and/or tussock grass, as well as in triodia hummock grassland with sparse low trees and shrubs.
Larvae have been recorded feeding on Eragrostis species.
Eragrostis pectinacea is a species of grass known by the common name Tufted lovegrass.
The larvae feed on dead plant material of bunch grass, Eragrostis and Nicotiana species.
The larvae feed on Eragrostis species.
Farrant is currently investigating the potential of turning eragrostis tef, an annual grass, into just such a crop.
Eragrostis trichodes is most common in sandy soil of the prairies on the central and southern Great Plains.
Eragrostis tef is adapted to environments ranging from drought stress to waterlogged soil conditions.
Eragrostis pectinacea is an annual tuft-forming bunchgrass, reaching maximum heights of anywhere from 10 to 80 centimeters.
Eragrostis minor (I)
Eragrostis pectinacea var.
Eragrostis saxatilis Hemsl.
Eragrostis trichodes, the Sand lovegrass, is a warm season perennial bunchgrass native to North America.
Eragrostis hirsuta (N)
His main contributions to botany have been publications on Ebenaceae and Gramineae, especially the genus Eragrostis.
Eragrostis tef has an attractive nutrition profile, being high in dietary fibre and iron and providing protein and calcium.
They are dominated by Stipagrostis obtusa and Aristida caerulescens, as well some Eragrostis papposa locally.
However, other genera build different sacs; Pseudomicrommata makes its nest in Eragrostis grass and may be ecologically confined to regions where the grass grows.
A species of grass, Eragrostis Dayanandanii, was discovered and named after P. Dayanandan for his valuable contributions to botany, especially in the field of grasses.
The larvae feed on various Poaceae species, including Eragrostis aspera, Ehrharta erecta and Pennisetum clandestinum.
Eragrostis hypnoides is a mat-forming, creeping annual, rooting at stolons and sending up short erect stem tips to about 10 centimeters in height at maximum.
Diaspores made of inflorescences occur also in some grasses, including Schedonnardus paniculatus and some species of Eragrostis and Aristida.
In Kashmir, the seeds of a species of Eragrostis was particularly dominant in their diet while those in the US favoured Bromus tectorum.
Depending on the soil and the effects of the pan, grasslands could be dominated by one of Eragrostis, Sporobolus, Monelytrum, Odyssea or Enneapogon species.
A year after it was published as a section of Eragrostis, Desmostachya was published as a genus in its own right in Flora Capensis 7: 316.
This species may hybridize with other Eragrostis, such as Eragrostis caesia, E. lehmanniana, and E. planiculmis.
