Forage legumes under the custody of the CGIAR include a very large group of species. In CIAT, forage legumes are part of what the center commonly refers to as Tropical Pastures although some of these species also grow in more temperate environments. CIAT list of tropical pasture also includes non legume species. In ILRI the forages legumes are listed separately from the forage grasses, incorporating tropical and temperate species. ICARDA mostly deals with temperate and mediterranean forage legumes.
