Abstract/Contents:"The lignin and total hemicellulose concentrations of ten varieties of temperate grass (five species) were determined with increasing maturity. A strong correlation existed between the lignin and hemicellulose concentrations. Lignin and hemicellulose concentrations tended to be higher in cocksfoot and timothy than in pernennial ryegrass and diploid varieties also had higher lignin and hemicellulose concentrations than their tetraploid counterparts. The hemicellulose fractions were further spearated into their linear and branched components whose compositions were determined. The varieties with higher lignin concentrations showed a higher liner:branched ratio and the 'linear' components also had higher xylose:arabinose ratios. These findings were consistent for both leaf and stem tissue although the effects from stem tissue were more marked."
