Abstract
One of the largest genera of sedges, Scleria is distributed throughout the tropics and subtropics but does not extend into the Mediterranean region and the Near East. These leafy herbs are usually to be found in wet places, pools, marshes and streams, in open grassland or forest and are most abundant in areas of high rainfall; their altitudinal tolerance seems high, as in East Africa they are found from sea level to 8,000 or 9,000 ft.
