Abstract
Andropogon cyrtocladus Stapf is a tall, coarse grass which occurs frequently on the Plateau and abundantly in the Haud. It has an altitude range of 1,500 ft. to 4,000 ft. Under optimal conditions of soil and rainfall, it will grow to 12 ft. high and form solid clumps 10 ft. or more in diameter. The specimen discussed here, was examined at Jerin, where it formed part of a small "island" associated with Acacia bussei Harms, Acacia arabica WilJd. and Acaciasplrocarpa Hochst.
