Effects of nitrogen fertilization, burning, and grazing on reserve constituents of big bluestem.
TLDR
A survey of the arthropod soil and litter fauna of some forest reserves and cacao estates in Trinidad and a review of the termites of some tropical soils.
Effects of Nitrogen and Phosphorus Fertilization on Carbohydrate and Nutrient Levels in Dupontia fisheri and Arctagrostis latifolia
TLDR
Recent explorations in arctic tundra revegetation by staff of this station have shown that fertilization to improve the nutrient availability of some arctic soils is necessary for establishing seedlings of native as well as introduced grasses.
Carbon and nitrogen reserves in marandu palisade grass subjected to intensities of continuous stocking management
TLDR
The results show that even with larger pools of soluble N and NSC in the shoot compartment, herbage accumulation was limited by the reduced leaf area of swards subjected to the severe grazing treatment, indicating that under continuous stocking growth seems to be sustained by current assimilates instead of organic reserves.
Seasonal nitrogen translocation in big bluestem during drought conditions.
This study, conducted during a severe drought in 1980, assesses the effects of burned and unburned treatments in tallgrass prairie on nitrogen content of big bluestem, AndropogongerardiiVitman.
Botanical composition, light interception, and carbohydrate reserve status of grazed 'Florakirk' Bermudagrass.
TLDR
Results from 2 yr of grazing suggest that Florakirk persists under a range of rotational stocking treatments, so grazing management decisions can be based primarily on productivity and nutritive value considerations.
Grazing date and frequency effects on prairie sandreed and sand bluestem.
TLDR
Rotationally grazing pastures 2 or more times during June-August is least likely to maintain or increase total organic reserves in either species, and deferment of grazing until mid-August or later will be required to maintain simultaneously high levels of reserves in prairie sandreed and sand bluestem.
Abiotic Resource Allocation by Turfgrass Plants During Times of Transition or Stress.

Yield, Vigor, and Persistence of Sand Lovegrass [ Eragrostis trichodes (Nutt.) Wood] Following Clipping Treatments
TLDR
Individual sand lovegrass plants on a choppy sands range site in Nebraska’s Sandhills were clipped with 7 different harvest regimes for 3 years to determine critical defoliation times and it was found that a critical time to defoliate grasses was during July 10.
Field Collection Techniques for Total Nonstructural Carbohydrate Analysis of Plant Storage Organs
TLDR
Differences did exist among the five species in storage-organ TNC concentration, however, apparently, TNC samples can be transported from the field to the drying oven without taking any precautions to prevent enzymatic degradation.

Carbohydrate reserves of grasses: a review.
TLDR
The level of carbohydrate reserves in the lower regions of the stems apparently affects the regrowth rate for the first 2 to 7 days following herbage removal, and this initial effect from the level of carbohydrates reserves can be maintained during subsequent exponential growth.
The Effect of Defoliation on the Carbon Balance in Dactylis glomerata
TLDR
The results indicated that the soluble carbohydrates formed part of a labile pool which was used in respiration and for providing substrates for new growth, and it was suggested that, following a severe defoliation, regrowth during the first week is limited in turn by the soluble carbohydrate content in the bases of expanding leaves.
THE APPLICATION OF THE TOTAL AVAILABLE CARBOHYDRATE METHOD TO THE STUDY OF CARBOHYDRATE RESERVES OF SWITCH CANE (ARUNDINARA TECTA).
TLDR
A summary of the studies on the analytical aspects of the method as well as its applicability to the study of the seasonal trends in the carbohydrate reserves in the storage organs of switch cane, a plant readily grazed by cattle.
Carbohydrate Reserve Content of Mountain Range Plants Following Defoliation and Regrowth.
TLDR
Results indicated that defoliation of grasses and forbs early in the season was more detrimental thandefoliation late in theSeason, but defoliations of browse late inThe season appeared to lower reserves more than early defoliated.
Morphological and Physiological Factors Affecting the Grazing Management of Crested Wheatgrass 1
TLDR
Tlae fourth point (Schult.) is an introduced perennial bunchgrass that has become a favorite for seecling semiarid range lands because it produces palatable and nutritious spring feed and withstands heavy spring grazing.
CLASSIFICATION OF SEVERAL NATIVE NORTH AMERICAN GRASSES AS STARCH OR FRUCTOSAN ACCUMULATORS IN RELATION TO TAXONOMY
TLDR
Several perennial grass species commonly found or used in Canada and in the northern areas of the USA were studied, indicating their possible tropical origin.
Determination of Total Available Carbohydrates in Plants.
TLDR
The estimation of carbohydrates plays an important part in both pure and applied plant physiology and for many purposes of a more applied nature the determination of the total available carbohydrate content is of greater significance than that of individual carbohydrates or groups of carbohydrates.
