Abstract/Contents:Discusses why the release of oxygen from grasses during photosynthesis that supports human respiration is not listed as a benefit of turfgrass, stating that "one must remember that more than 20% of the atmosphere is composed of oxygen. Thus, there is a question as to just how relevant this turfgrass oxygen release is in terms of 'real world' human physiological functions."
