Hot springs panic grass, Dichanthelium lanuginosum var sericeum (Schmoll), successfully colonizes geo-thermally heated soils that are subject to chronic temperatures ranging from 40 to 50 1C, occurs at altitudes in excess of 2500m, and tolerates low soil moisture content for extended periods of time. We utilized superoxide dismutase (SOD; EC as an indicator of oxidative stress response to compare the impacts of temperature on wheat (Triticum aestivum L.), a cool-season grass, with the… CONTINUE READING
