Physiological responses of weeping lovegrass, Eragrostis curvula (Schrad) Nees, to drought. Nucleic acids and proteins

, : Physiological responses of weeping lovegrass, Eragrostis curvula (Schrad) Nees, to drought. Nucleic acids and proteins. Studia Oecologica 6: 97-110

Foliar nucleic acid and protein contents showed a marked reduction in young plants of cultivars Morpa (drought susceptible) and Don Eduardo (with some resistance to drought) subjected to a gradual increase in water stress over 10 days. When compared to Don Eduardo, Morpa showed a greater decrease in DNA (60 vs. 23%) and RNA (74 vs. 22%) contents. The reductions in nucleic acid also occurred later and less abruptly in Don Eduardo.

The chromosome numbers of 54 strains, grouped into five types on the basis of leaf characters, inflorescence and growth habit, ranged from 2n = 40 to 70. The basic number appeared to be 10 but no strains having 2n = 20 were found. Tetraploid strai...

Only the extreme variants could be distinguished by hand plucking. Quantitative...
