Aegilops

 

a genus of annual herbs of the family Graminae. The inflorescence is narrowly cylindrical. The lanceolate or oval spikes fall as a whole or in parts upon maturation. The spikelets are two-to five-flowered; the flowers are borne singly on the axis of the spike. There are 20 to 25 species, distributed from the Mediterranean to Afghanistan and Central Asia. The USSR has ten species, in the southern European section, in the Caucasus, and in Middle Asia. The plants grow on rocky and dry slopes, on sand, and near roads; more frequently they occur as weeds in various cultivated crops. Aegilops cylindrica, which is eaten by grazing livestock and sometimes used as hay, is commonly found in steppes and semideserts.
