Three Examples of Grass Species

Caption: Here are examples of grass species likely to be particularly common in Aarhus with different diurnal flowering patterns. The scientists conclude that the best way to explain the three diurnal concentration patterns is to look at the succession of different grass species with different diurnal flowering patterns throughout the season. From left to right: Cock's-foot (Dactylis glomerata), false oat-grass, (Arrhenatherum elatius) and perennial ryegrass (Lolium perenne)
