Abstract/Contents:Reports results of studies conducted at the Texas Agricultural Experiment Station in 1985 to analyze the rooting characteristics of 'Seaside' creeping bentgrass and relate them to plants that have shown tolerance to heat stress. Plants were isolated that survived high root temperature conditions and transplanted to controlled growth mediums where root growth was carefully measured. Root heat tolerant seaside genotypes exhibited deeper, denser rooting patterns than did typical seaside genotypes. Frequently distributions suggest that selection for heat tolerance indirectly selected a population with increased rooting area.
