  • Stipa grandis P. Smirn. is a C3 perennial bunchgrass that is distributed widely in eastern Eurasian steppes and the middle Eurasian steppe zone.[1] [2]
  • This species is dominant in the typical steppe of the Xilingole Plateau of Inner Mongolia. [1]
  • The S. grandis steppe acts as a natural green barrier and plays an important role in sandstorm prevention.[3][4]
  • Common Name: Stipa grandis
