Grasses are by far the most economically and ecologically important plant family, but the same attributes that make grasses so productive and dominant also means that there are some species in the family that are extremely invasive.

This site will focus on the invasive grasses, a few of which are so dominant and competitive that I have termed them hegemonic, in the sense that they can quickly overrun an area and form vast monocultures.
