Abstract/Contents:Presents a study conducted to "evaluate variations in drought and heat tolerance for two mapping populations of bentgrass segragating for disease resistance." Describes the experiment and the methods used, explaining that "a field study was conducted in summer and fall of both 2008 and 2009 in a fully automated mobile shelter (35' [feet] x 60') at Rutgers University."

USGA Summary Points:Phenotypic variations in drought and heat tolerance exist in the creeping bentgrass and hybrid bentgrass mapping population developed for disease resistance. Significant QTLs were identified for various traits that were good indicators for stress tolerance and turf performance under below optimal conditions such as TQ, EL, and RWC. Important chromosomal locations for heat and drought tolerance may exist on 5 different linkage groups for the creeping bentgrass population and 3 different linkage groups in the hybrid population. Regions of the chromosome with significant overlap for both heat and drought tolerance and for multiple stress tolerance parameters such as CTD and EL may be the most useful in future studies for development of marker-assisted selection procedures.
