      Seedling handedness with regard to first seedling leaf above the coleoptile has been studied in 67 genera and 93 species spread over 11 tribes of Gramineae. In general the tribes Paniceae, Andropogoneae, Festuceae, Hordeae, Aveneae, Bambuseae, Oryzeae and Chlorideae show seedling handedness whereas it is absent in Agrostideae, Phalarideae and Poaceae. Some tribes contain species that show handedness. Seedling handedness may be used for taxonomic purposes for delimiting the various tribes of Gramineae.
