Bambuseae

Description:

bamboo (Bambuseae) is a tribe of flowering perennial evergreen plants in the grass family. Giant bamboos are the largest members of the grass family. In bamboos, the internal regions of the stem are hollow and the vascular bundles in the cross section are scattered throughout the stem instead of in a cylindrical arrangement. Bamboos are some of the fastest-growing plants in the world. Bamboos are of notable economic and cultural significance in South Asia, Southeast Asia and East Asia, being used for building materials, as a food source, and as a versatile raw product. High-quality bamboo is stronger than steel, a property that has made it a choice in building materials and weaponry

Habitat:

While walking one of the numerous paths in Kinder farm county park, I came across this incredible dense forest of bamboo along a pond. It was quite amazing and so thick. I think it would be a good hiding place or home for small animals and birds.

I agree Jemma. Such diversity of life in this state. I'm always finding wonderful things and places to explore. This Kinder farm county park is close to heavy development but has hundreds of acres of farm land to explore, and, of course, places for wildlife to call home.
