Abstract/Contents:"Centipedegrass, Eremochloa ophiuroides (Munro) Hack., was examined to investigate characteristics having plant breeding implications. Morphological and isoenzymatic genetic markers, inheritance of stem color (node), and chromosome number (2n) and karyotype were studied on a Florida collection of centipedegrass selections. A taxonomic description was written for this grass because of ambiguity in the literature and characteristics found by this investigation. With the exception of red and yellow plant color (nodes and anthers), no major morphological variability was found. Differences were found among selections for infloresence [inflorescence] and spikelet density and seed yield. Separation of peroxidase and esterase isoenzymes by disc electrophoresis and acrylamide gels revealed phenotypic variation among selections. Inheritance of red and yellow node color indicated a one gene model with yellow the recessive character. Chromosome number showed no deviation from the reported 2n=18. Somatic chromosomes varied in size with their centromeres located to give primarily metacentric and submetacentric forms."
