  • Setaria viridis is is a species of grass that is a member of the Panicoid family. It is native to Eurasia, but it is known on most continents as an introduced species and is closely related to Setaria faberi. It is a hardy grass which grows in many types of urban, cultivated, and disturbed habitat, including vacant lots, sidewalks, railroads, lawns, and at the margins of fields. It is the wild antecedent of the crop foxtail millet. It is the most economically important family of grass species that has been proposed as a model to study C4 photosynthesis and related bioenergy grasses[1][2].
