Red Clover Science
This book discusses the history of reproductive biology, Genetics, and Evolution, and its role in management, Utilization, Quality, and Antiquality, as well as some of the present and future trends.
Doubling the chromosome number of bahiagrass via tissue culture
Diploid bahiagrass embryogenic callus tissue was exposed to three concentrations of three antimitotic chemical agents, colchicine, oryzalin and trifluralin and the high rates of success indicate that all agents can be successfully used to double chromosome numbers in bahiAGrass.
Genetic diversity and DNA content of three South American and three Eurasiatic Trifolium species
Six species of Trifolium were analyzed using inter-simple sequence repeats (ISSR) markers and grouped the six species in agreement with their geographical origin and clearly differentiate T. polymorphum from T. argentinense.
Bahiagrass Tetraploid Germplasm: Reproductive and Agronomic Characterization of Segregating Progeny
Heritability estimates obtained for these characteristics indicate that selection can be successfully used for the genetic improve-ment of this species.
Doubling the Chromosome Number of Trifolium Species Using Nitrous Oxide1
Ease and frequency of chromosome doubling was considerably higher and production of mixaploids was lower than in previously reported colchicine treatments and the treatment was toxic to T. hirtum All.
Tetraploid bahiagrass hybrids: breeding technique, genetic variability and proportion of heterotic hybrids
The objectives were to create a second generation of hybrids by crossing sexual first-generation tetraploid hybrids and unrelated apomictic FGTH or ecotypes, determine the segregation for mode of reproduction, and estimate the resulting genetic variation and heterosis for several agronomic characteristics.
Registration of Q4188 and Q4205, sexual tetraploid germplasm lines of bahiagrass
This research presents a novel and scalable approach called “Smart grids” that allows for smart grids to be integrated into existing smart grids and to provide real-time information about how the system works.
Cluster analysis of a world collection of red clover germplasm
A large range of diversity is revealed among the red clover accessions over all origins with the most diversity occurring in accessions from Eastern and Northern Europe.
Canopy Structure and Nutritive Value of Limpograss Pastures during Mid‐Summer to Early Autumn
Cattle (Bos spp.) grazing warm-season, perennial grasses in the lower Southeast USA often gain at a slower rate during mid-summer to early autumn than they do before or after this season, and speculation is that low average daily gains (ADG) may result from changes in canopy structure or herbage nutritive value.
Apomixis and ploidy barrier suppress pollen-mediated gene flow in field grown transgenic turf and forage grass (Paspalum notatum Flüggé)

While not providing complete transgene containment, gene transfer between transgenic apomictic and non-transgenic bahiagrass occurs at a much lower frequency than reported for other cross-pollinating or facultative apomitzic grasses.
