Abstract/Contents:"Bermudagrass (Cynodon spp.) is the most widely cultivated warm-season turfgrass. Cynodon dactylon (L.) Pers. var. dactylon has demonstrated high variability in genotypic adaptation to low winter temperature. In the transition zone, the northern portion especially, managed bermudagrass often succumbs to low temperature winterkill, although bermudagrass has naturalized in areas much colder than the current use range. In order to better understand the genetic basis of naturalized cold tolerance in bermudagrass it is important to understand the genetic variability between naturalized germplasm from across the northern edge of the transition zone and the southern portion of cool-season zone. Twenty-three samples were collected from across the northern transition zone of the United States and compared to five bermudagrasses from similar climates across the world and four commercial standards. The bermudagrass DNA samples were extracted from young leaves separately, and forty-six SSR markers were used to genotype the samples for revealing genetic relatedness in the naturalized bermudagrass."
