Abstract/Contents:Discusses a study designed "to define specific ice cover tolerance, using laboratory and field data" for Agrostis palustris and Poa annua. Reports that "Poa annua plants were dead after only 60 days covered in ice. In contrast, creeping bentgrass plants showed cold hardiness to -26°C after 90 days of ice cover before 50% of the plant population died."
