Selection for specific leaf weight in reed canarygrass and its effects on the plant


, : Selection for specific leaf weight in reed canarygrass and its effects on the plant. Proceedings of the XIV International Grassland Congress, Lexington, Kentucky, June 15-24, 1981: 207-209

Two cycles of selection for high and low specific leaf weight (SLW, dry weight/unit leaf area) were conducted in Phalaris arundinacea 'NCRC1'. In a space-planted trial, average direct responses from two selection cycles for high and low SLW were 23 and 19%, respectively. Significant correlated responses were obtained for ten characters.

Stochastic rainfall models are important tools both for practical issues and in studies of weather- and climate-sensitive systems. We propose an event-based model, continuous in space (two-dimensional) and time, that describes regional-scale, grou...
