They are found in most temperate regions of the world. They are clumping grasses with long, erect stems bearing spikelets of papery grass flowers. Some species of melic have corms and are sometimes called oniongrass.

The common oat (Avena sativa) is a species of cereal grain grown for its seed. While oats are suitable for human consumption as oatmeal and rolled oats, one of the most common uses is as livestock feed. Oats make up a large part of the diet of horses and are regularly fed to cattle as well. Oats are also used in some brands of dog and chicken feed.

A tall, tufted grass. It is adapted to deep, rich soils, as it roots deeply, yet it grows on poor soils to some extent. It is often desirable in a pasture mixture. The high price of seed and the seed adulteration seem to be the chief causes for its limited use.

Orchard Grass (Dactylis glomerata) also called Rough Cock's-foot, flowers in dense clusters. The stem is erect and about three feet high. When found in good soil it has been known to grow over five feet high. The leaves are linear, flat, dark-green and rough on both surfaces, which, with the fancied resemblance of its clusters to the foot of a barnyard fowl, gives it the common name in England of rough cock's foot.

Rice (Oryza sativa) is a long panicled grass, having, when ripe, some resemblance to oats, the seed growing in a separate pedicel starting from the main stalk. Each kernel terminates in an awn, and is enclosed in a rough husk, or scale, of a yellowish color. The stem or stalk of rice is similiar to that of wheat, except that the joints are more numerous. It is annual, and rises to the height of from two to six feet, according to the variety, soil, and culture. The rice seed is surrounded with a husk, which is so closely attached to it as being difficult of seperation. It is cleaned by passing through mill-stones, set far enough apart to prevent crushing the grain, but sufficiently near to remove the husks or chaff by friction.

Sweet-scented Vernal Grass (Anthoxanthum odoratum) has three-flowered spreading spikelets. The lateral flowers are neutral with one palea, hairy on the outside, and awned on the back. The glumes are thin, acute, keeled, the upper twice as long as the lower. The seed is ovate and adhearing to the palea which encloses it. The stem is from one and a half to two feet high. The root is perennial and flowers in May and June. This is one of the earliest spring grasses and one of the latest in autumn, and is almost the only grass that is fragrant.

The grass is two-flowered, the lower flower staminate, bearing a long bent awn below the middle of the back. The leaves are flat, acute and roughish on both sides. The panicle leans slightly to one side and the glumes are very unequal. The stems grow from two to three feet high with a perennial fibrous root that is sometimes bulbous. It is distinguished from other grasses by having two florets, the lower one having a long awn rising from a little above the base of the base of the outer palea. The grass flowers from May to July.

Timothy is a staple food for domestic pet rabbits, guinea pigs,chinchillas, and degus, often making up the bulk of their diet. If the stalk is cut from the tubers before evidence of maturity appears, with nutritin arrested, the proper growth will cease. An effort is made to repair the injury by sending out small, lateral tubers, as shown here.

Wheat (Triticum vulgare) is an annual herbaceous plant. The seed is oblong, or a compressed oval, surrounded by scales or chaff, which are easily removed. The side of the kernal or fruit which is next to the rachis in growing is marked by a deep groove separating the mealy parts in the middle . On the other side of the kernal a small oval is seen. The oval is the seat of the embryo, or place where the germ of the new plant is to take its start. The grain is composed to a great extent of starch, with a large percentage of gluten and other nitrogen bodies. Shown is a variation of winter wheat.
