Abstract/Contents:Describes the function of stomatas in the transpiration of water and oxygen to the atmosphere by the turfgrass plant. Reports results of study to analyze the relationship of stomata density on 12 cool-season turfgrasses (9 species) to the plants potential evapotranspiration rate and if that density would prove to have any genetic significance to the development of cultivars with reduced water requirements. Although wide differences were found upon examination of polyvinal impressions of leaf blade stomata densities, data from the research would suggest that manipulation of stomatal characteristics would not significantly reduce water use rates in cool-season turfgrasses. Density, leaf size and orientation, and growth rate manipulation would provide a more beneficial approach to water conservation.
