USGA Summary Points:The study examined thermal Agrostis scabra, non-thermal Agrostis scabra, A. rossiae, and Agrostis palustris cv. L-93. Photosynthesis rate, transpiration rate, and stomatal conductance decreased for all species and ecotypes over the course of the study. This decrease was most pronounced in a non-thermal A. scabra ecotype. Total root number for all species decreased over time at 35° and 42°C. Both non-thermal and thermal ecotypes of A. scabra had greater root number than other Agrostis species. Root dry weight data showed the same trends as root number data. Among the 23 uncommon up-regulated genes, 20 fragments were only shown in heat-stressed A. scabra. Results suggests that some of these genes could be directly involved in heat tolerance since they are only found in heat-stressed thermal A. scabra.
