Abstract: Morphological and physiological responses to freezing were evaluated in two ecotypes of the perennial turfgrass Paspalum vaginatum. Leaf extension rate, number of active meristems, leaf water potential and net photosynthesis were measured on plants of both a commercial cultivar, 'Sea Isle 2000', and a wild ecotype from the Flooding Pampa grasslands of Argentina. Plants were propagated by cloning, cultivated in pots, and examined during 18 consecutive days under two treatments: a non-frozen control treatment (1… Show more

“…Hemicryptophytes are considered the most resistant life form (Liddle and Greig-Smith, 1975;Hall andKuss, 1989 andCole, 1995) while Poaceae is a well-known family for its tolerance against drought, salinity, freeze and different abiotic stresses (Céccoli et. al., 2015;Fabbri et. al., 2016 andLandi et.…”

“…Commonly known as seashore paspalum, it plays important ecological and utilitarian roles such as dune stabilization, erosion control, lawn in sport fields and animal forage. Moreover, it is a well-known turfgrass primarily recommended for coastal golf courses because of its tolerance to multiple stress factors such as salinity, drought and waterlogging, its ability to tolerate ranges of water sources and soil pH, its efficiency for nutrient uptake (Duncan & Carrow 2000) and its wide tolerance to freezing stress events (Fabbri et al 2016a). It is also highly efficient to colonise open spaces and to form dense populations in saline environments where other species may not grow (Anderson & Ehringer 2000).…”

Besides having good stress tolerance, species introduced to landscape should have good ornamental characteristics.…”
