Abstract/Contents:Presents a study of fine-leaved fescue species used for turfgrass purposes in Frace. States that "in 1993 and 1994, an extensive collection was performed over France for fine-leaved fesuce species...[and] the collection gathered 199 populations of chewing fescues (Festuca nigrescens subsp. nigrescens), 148 populations of inland strong creeping red fescues (Festuca rubra subsp. fallax), 64 popluations of seaside slender creeping red rescues (Festuca rubra subsp. litoralis and Festuca rubra subsp. pruinosa), and 94 populations of hard and sheep fescues (species of subg. Festuca sect. Festuca, or Festuca ovina complex)." Also states that "the collected populations were tested for turf traits in...three nursery locations and three turf trials locations from 1994 to 1998, and the recorded datat were afterwards used for breeding purposes." Also discusses the 2004 analysis of variability and spatail organization for turf traits. Concludes that "the variability of chewing fescues is spatially organized in patches for traits showing such patterns...[and] the best turf qualities were associated with the northernmost and westernmost geographical classes and with the lowest altitude."
