About Brachypodium sylvaticum

B. sylvaticum flowerBrachypodium sylvaticum also called slender false-brome is a perennial bunchgrass native to Europe, Asia, and North Africa. It is a close relative of Brachypodium distachyon which is a model plant species for bioenergy feedstock. In much of the United States, B. sylvaticum is considered an invasive species and is listed as a noxious weed covering the west coast of California, Oregon, and Washington. For more information on the species and how to identify the plant please visit the respective webpages on the King County, Oregon Department of Agriculture and the Institute of Applied Ecology websites.
