Abstract/Contents:"Bahiagrass (Paspalum notatum Flugge) and seashore paspalum (P. vaginatum) are perennial grasses adapted to warm tropical and subtropical regions; they are considered good alternatives for low maintenance turf. However, these species are not shade tolerant; on a shady area, these grasses produce spindly leaves and stems. Fringe-leaf paspalum (Paspalum setaceum var. ciliatifolium) has some shade tolerance and possess potential of hybridization with bahiagrass and seashore paspalum. Therefore, interspecific hybrids can be obtained by combining improved turf characteristics from seashore paspalum/bahiagrass and shade tolerance from fringe-leaf paspalum. The objective of this study is to develop novel interspecific hybrids that will result in lower turf management inputs, particularly in shaded areas. Bahiagrass and seashore paspalum will be used as a female parent and crossed to shade-tolerant fringe-leaf paspalum. Given that hybrid seed might have low germination, in vitro techniques will be performed to recover hybrid seed. Flow cytometry and chromosome counting will also be performed on the putative hybrids; this is done with the objective of understanding the cytology of the hybrids and the chromosomes pairing behavior. Finally, molecular techniques will be used to verify if the putative hybrid indeed comes from crosses. Hybrid progeny is expected to present an in between genome size obtained by the flow cytometry compared to both parent's genome."
