Abstract/Contents:Briefly presents a study conducted in Kumning, China which examines "the dynamic variation of turfgrass root system [systems] , select turfgrasses that have good performance of overwintering and integrated characteristics, and [which provides] some recommendations for turf greening in Kunming and similar areas." Provides information on the materials and methods employed during the study, stating that "the experiment used a randomized block design with three replications, the plot size was 1.0mX1.0m [one square meter], sown with a single variety." Reports that "the dynamic changes of root biomass of all turfgrasse [turfgrass] species can be divided into four periods," explaining the details of each period. Concludes that "varieties of turfgrasses such as Athena, Pixie, Red Elephant, Firephoenix, Pickwick, [and] Bluemoon possessing desirable root characteristics can be used as slope-protected grass."
