Plant, stem, leaf, flower, pod and seed traits can all be scored or measured and expressed in numeric values. Descriptive traits such as flower colour can be expressed as a numeric value by using a standard colour chart. The descriptive traits used will vary with the species.

      Growth vs. Development It is helpful to differentiate between growth and development. Growth is an increase in biomass, whether for a leaf, plant, or grassland. Growth rate varies over time and depends on the life cycle of the plant, its environment, and the management imposed. Development, in contrast, is the passage through life cycle phases. For forage grasses, the life cycle is divided.   Some characters are rather variable (e.g., leaf shape, stem height, time of flowering) while other characters are fixed (i.e., floral characters). The source of the variation observed in these characters can either be environmental or genetic. One way to distinguish between them is to do transplant experiments. V. Vegetative Terminology.

Identifying vegetative grasses and seed heads To identify grasses in established pastures, first check to see whether the grass is sod forming (spreading) or bunching (forms clumps).

If you’re examining a sod-forming grass, the next step is to look at the width of the leaf blades (1⁄2-inch wide, ⁄4-inch wide, or less than 1⁄8-inch wide.

Also, everyone likes a bargain - this is an inflation-busting book. Since work first started on the Vegetative Key, we’ve almost covered the distance to the moon, using every mode of transport from hovercraft to helicopters, in a quest to critically examine plants.

We think it offers good value for money. Identification Key to Turfgrass Species Both couplets or triplets should be read before deciding where to proceed. The key includes common turfgrass, plus some lesser-used species that are often misidentified in the field.

All grasses and grass-like plants in the family Graminaceae (or Poaceae) are easily identified by their long, narrow leaves with parallel they mature they form a "stem"--which is not a true stem like with woody- and broad-leaf species of angiosperms and gymnosperms--or a culm that ends with an inflorescence or seed-head Views: 92K.

The study of the physical features (external structure) of plants is referred to as morphology. Morphology of grass plants is not just a biological pursuit but can aid in many everyday decisions for the forage manager.

Grasses, whether annual or perennial, are mostly herbaceous (not woody), monocotyledon plants with jointed stems and sheathed leaves. A VEGETATIVE KEY TO GRASSES Ellen McDouall. START: LEAF BLADES: Bristle-like Table 1 (page 1) refers back to previous pair of characters in line (D.
