Buffalograss (Buchloë dactyloides (Nutt.) Englem), a C4 turfgrass species, is native to the Great Plains region of North America. The evolutionary implications of buffalograss are unclear. Sequencing of rbcL and matK genes from plastid and the cob gene from mitochondrial genomes was examined to elucidate buffalo grass evolution. This study is the first to report sequencing of these genes from organelle genomes in the genus Buchloë. Comparisons of sequence data from the mitochondrial and plastid… CONTINUE READING
