In the shola forests in particular, dioecy is quite prevalent among the Lauraceae and Moraceae.
The grasslands that surround the shola forests consist of several fire - and frost-resistant grasses: Chrysopogon zeylanicus, Cymbopogon flexuosus, Arundinella ciliata, Arundinella mesophylla, Arundinella tuberculata, Themeda tremula, and Sehima nervosum.
