Dallisgrass, Paspalum dilatatum, is a
tufted perennial grass that was in-
roduced into the United States from
Uruguay and Argentina. It is now naturalized in much of the southern
United States. In California dallisgrass is found throughout the state except at high elevations, such as the Great
Basin and Sonoran Deserts. It has been
used as a pasture grass in wet areas or irrigated sites, but it is less com-
only used as forage in...

Limnocharis is considered to be a major weed in many
countries. This perennial aquatic plant colonises shallow
wetlands and margins of deeper water ways. It can quickly
grow to dominate native aquatic plants and affects the
ecolog y of stream banks by displacing native flora
Limnocharis can change the hydrolog y of water bodies by
reducing the width of channels, thereby restricting water
