In More Detail.....
Bamboo is the largest grass in the grass family and also the fastest growing woody plant in the world. It is capable of growing up to 60cm or more per day due to a unique rhizome-dependent system. Bamboo can be selectively harvested every year after 7 years, compared to 30 to 50 years for trees, and bamboo regenerates without replanting. With a 10-30% annual increase in biomass versus 2-5% for trees, bamboo can yield 20 times more timber than trees in the same area.
Bamboo grows quickly but does not require fertilizers and pesticides, and requires very little water so can easily survive in drought conditions. Because of its wide spread root system and large canopy, bamboo greatly reduces rain run-off and prevents massive soil erosion. The plant also releases a significant amount of oxygen into atmosphere; it helps to reduce the level of carbon dioxide in the air.
Soft bamboo shoots, stems, and leaves are the major food source of the Giant Panda of China. China has an abundant resource of bamboo - over 400 species. For 3000 years, the Chinese have been making bamboo products. Bamboo is of notable economic and cultural significance in China.
