The tribe Eragrosteae is similar in spikelet variation to the tribes Aveneae and Poeae (i.,e., spikelets with one to many florets and that are laterally compressed such that keeled glumes and lemmas are the norm). Eragrosteae, however, is part of the warm season grass group that includes also Andropogoneae and Paniceae. Many of these warm season grass species have tough wiry leaves, which is indicative of a leaf warm season leaf anatomy or leaf construction (e.g., Kranz anatomy). In Montana, the diversity and abundance of Eragrosteae, as with the other warm season grass groups, is mostly concentrated in disturbance-prone settings.
