Abstract/Contents:Reports on research conducted "to identify the physiological and biochemical mechanisms associated with improved cold tolerance for four different genotypes of perennial ryegrass with varying tolerance to low temperatures." Mentions lipid composition, water soluble carbohydrates, and photosynthetic sensitivity to photoinhibition as primary variables under observation. Concludes that, "based on results from this research project, we plan to further investigate the reliability and efficiency of specific physiological traits as selection criteria for predicting low-temperature tolerance in cool-season turfgrasses susceptible to winter injury."
