The article reports on the different views of students, taxonomists and authorities regarding two bamboo plants, Bambusa tuldoides and Bambusa ventricosa. Their views centered on whether two bamboos have the same characteristics and growth habit. There is literature supporting the fact that the two bamboos are different.
