Bamboo is fastest growing multipurpose renewable woody plant on the earth (the highest recorded growth rate is 1m/day which makes 1mm of growth in every 90 seconds). They are high biomass producing perennial plants belonging to the family Poaceae. It is thought to have originated in China as per the first use of bamboo so far recorded. The genera of bamboo grown today are known to be evolved from primitive grasses around thirty million years ago. Bamboos are distinguished as woody culms, dense and unique rhizomatous system (rendering its fast growth) with gregarious flowering nature. Bamboo vegetation is widely distributed ranging from high altitude of 4000m in Himalayas to low altitude areas. Bamboo grows in almost all type of climate (except in extreme cold regions). They are commonly found in evergreen, wet and deciduous (moist and dry) forests. The regions of heavy downpour are also suitable for bamboo growth which is hardly suitable for other useful vegetation. This cosmopolitan distribution of bamboo makes it easily available for mankind.
