Therefore, this study tried to determine the floristic composition and socio-economic importance of the Poaceaeflora in the commune of Aguié and Mayahi. We used plot method based on systematic random sampling technique to inventory gramineae species within the parklands in August and September 2012. The grass flora of the two communes is composed of 45 species, divided into 27 genera and 8 tribes in 106 relevés. The grass flora of the commune of Aguié is composed of 41 species distributed in 25 genera and 8 tribes, while The Commune of Mayahi comprises 6 tribes, 21 genera and 38 species. The ethnobotanical survey realized on a sample of 52 persons that revealed that the grass flora provides a myriad of benefits to the people of the two communes. The grass species contribute a lot in the livelihoods the populations. The study revealed the main uses that the populations make of these species are pastoral, agricultural, socio-economic, ecological etc. This study recommends further research that examines the impact of human activities on the grass flora of the two communes.
