Bamboo

Bamboo, common name for about 45 genera and about 480 species of perennial, woody, usually shrubby or treelike plants of the grass family. Bamboos occur mostly in tropical and subtropical areas. They are most abundant in southeastern Asia, but some species exist in the Americas and Africa. The plants range from about 1 to 50 m (about 3 to 164 ft) in height.

Bamboos have woody, jointed stems called culms. The culms consist of hollow sections called internodes, which are interrupted by regularly spaced solid partitions called internal linknodes. At each node a sheath protects a bud, which may develop into either a branch or a flower cluster. Bamboos are used widely by humans. In the tropics they are used for constructing houses, rafts, bridges, and scaffolding. Split and flattened culms can be interwoven to make baskets, mats, hats, and fish traps; culms of large species may be used as containers for liquids. Young shoots are eaten as a vegetable.

Scientific classification: Bamboos belong to the family Gramineae.
