A linkage map of meadow fescue (Festuca pratensis Huds.) and comparative mapping with other Poaceae species
A genetic linkage map has been constructed for meadow fescue (Festuca pratensis Huds.) (2n=2x=14) using a full-sib family of a cross between a genotype from a Norwegian population (HF2) and aExpand

Analysis of genetic diversity in a sweet potato (Ipomoea batatas L.) germplasm collection from Tanzania as revealed by AFLP
Sweet potato (Ipomoea batatas L.) is the fifth most important crop in the developing countries after rice, wheat, maize and cassava. The amplified fragment length polymorphism (AFLP) method was usedExpand

Comparative analyses reveal potential uses of Brachypodium distachyon as a model for cold stress responses in temperate grasses
BackgroundLittle is known about the potential of Brachypodium distachyon as a model for low temperature stress responses in Pooideae. The ice recrystallization inhibition protein (IRIP) genes,Expand

Effects of distance and pollen competition on gene flow in the wind-pollinated grass Festuca pratensis Huds
Pollen dispersal and gene flow in the grass meadow fescue (Festuca pratensis Huds.) were studied using two populations which were homozygous for different allozymes at the Gpi-2 locus. TheExpand

Phylogeographical history of the widespread meadow fescue (Festuca pratensis Huds.) inferred from chloroplast DNA sequences
Aim  Here we explore the variation in chloroplast DNA (cpDNA) in a widespread Eurasian diploid forage grass, meadow fescue (Festuca pratensis Huds.), to address its phylogeographical history. InExpand

Phenotypic and genotypic variation in seed production traits within a full‐sib family of meadow fescue
Phenotypic and genotypic variation for seed yield and associated traits (heading date, plant height, number of fertile tillers, 1000-seed weight, panicle length, seed weight per panicle, fertility,Expand

Molecular mechanisms underlying frost tolerance in perennial grasses adapted to cold climates.
We review recent progress in understanding cold and freezing stress responses in forage grass species, notably Lolium and Festuca species. The chromosomal positions of important frost tolerance andExpand

Tracking the evolution of a cold stress associated gene family in cold tolerant grasses
BackgroundGrasses are adapted to a wide range of climatic conditions. Species of the subfamily Pooideae, which includes wheat, barley and important forage grasses, have evolved extreme frostExpand
