by Pereira, Silas Costa

Abstract (Summary)
The present work consists of a survey of grass species occurring in different natural environments in Poços de Caldas, Minas Gerais State, Brazil. It is part of a project, originating from the linkage between the Fundação de Desenvolvimento da UNICAMP and the Companhia Geral de Minas Gerais (ALCOMINAS) being carried out by the Departamento de Morfologia e Sistemática Vegetais da Universidade Estadual de Campinas (UNICAMP). Among other objectives, this project aims to make suggestions for landscape reconstitution in Poços de Caldas, using species native to the region, taking into account the drastic modifications that are being caused by bauxite mining. After 17 périodic trips (during 15 months) for sample collection, a total of 67 grass species have been encourtered, occurring indifferent natural environments of the municipio. Analytical keys for identification, and illustrated descriptions are given. Based on field observations, bibliographic search and study of about 2100 exsicatas from 10 herbaria, data on distribution, and information relative to ecological and agronomic aspectos, are given for each species. The genera with the highest numbers of species were Paspalum L., Axonopus Beauv., Anthaenantiopsis fiebrigii and Panicum L., with 9, 8 and 7 species respectively, is cited for the first time for Brazil...
