Tussock grassland is a form of open grassland common in many temperate southern hemisphere regions, notably in New Zealand, but also in Australia, Argentina, some subantarctic islands, and parts of southern and eastern Africa.
It is usually typified by low rainfall and poor soils, in which few plants other than hardy tussock can flourish.
