  • Arundo donax has played an important role in the culture of the western world through its influence on the development of music. Reeds for woodwind musical instruments are still made from the culms, and no satisfactory substitutes have been developed. This grass has also been used as a source of cellulose for rayon and considered as a source of paper pulp.
