Title A Taxonomic Key for Selected Turf-Type Bermudagrasses
Creator Pannkuk, Tim R.
Subject bermudagrass; taxonomic key; turfgrass
Description Bermudagrass is a widely used turfgrass on golf courses and athletic fields of the southern United States.  Correct identification of individual cultivars is essential for plant breeders and when managing established turf.  Contamination of bermudagrass with off-types is common.  The objective is to provide data in a format that will aid in identifying turf-type bermudagrasses.  Thirteen cultivars were selected, measured, and evaluated on taxonomic characteristics.  A dichotomous taxonomic key was developed, and a table of data for mean leaf blade widths, vein number, and leaf margin serrations.
