CIAT aims to identify drought resistant tropical forage grasses by characterizing an “ideotype” for different water use strategies. Drought stress is a major abiotic factor restricting plant growth and productivity around the world. While interest in the potential of tropical and subtropical forage (TSTF) germplasm for improved livestock production commenced earlier, it was not until the s and s that plant collecting and research on diversity and utilization of grasses . plants fell victim to increased heating costs, ending the tropical plant craze. Recent interest in tropical plants has once again brought gingers to the forefront. This versatile group can be used in many different tropical-style settings. They can be an accent in woodland gardens, around ponds, in borders, with shrubs or under trees. tropical almond. Terminalia catappa. 66 ferntree. Filicium decipiens. 57 fishtail palm.
