A difference-differential equation model has been developed which simulates phytomass and nitrogen flow of grassland primary by: History. Agropyron cristatum is one of several closely related grass species referred to as crested wheatgrass. It is unable to hybridize with its similar relatives, as it is a diploid species, whereas its closest relative, Agropyron desertorum, is a tetraploid species. It was introduced from Russia and Siberia to North America in the first half of the twentieth century, and widely used to Family: Poaceae. The identification of the "seeds" 2 of the species of Agropyron is an important problem to the farmer, the seedsman, and the seed laboratory. Agropyron repens (quack-grass) is recognized as a dangerous weed, and the similarity between the seed of this species and other common but more desirable species of Agropyron gives rise to confusion. Up.

The native vegetation is mixed‐grass grassland dominated by blue grama grass Bouteloua gracilis, needle‐and‐thread grass Stipa comata and spikemoss Selaginella densa (Christian & Wilson ).

Agropyron. It is now agreed that Agropyron should be restricted to A. cristatum and its close relatives, i.e., the crested wheatgrasses. There is less agreement on how its members should be treated. The genus is native to Eurasia. The table below is based on Tsvelev's () treatment, with additional information being taken from Yang ( AGSM - Agropyron smithii. Looking for abbreviations of AGSM? It is Agropyron smithii. Agropyron smithii listed as AGSM (Sorghastrum nutans), big bluestem (Andropogon gerardii), sideoats grama (Bouteloua curtipendula), little bluestem (Schizachyrium scoparium), Agropyron repens; Agropyron smithii; Agropyron subsecundum; Agropyron.

The use of genetic divergence generated by somatic mutations is a novel approach to measure genet size and to estimate life span (Heinze and Fussi, ). It is based on the fact that constant division of mitotic cells in clonal plants leads to the accumulation of somatic mutations over time (‘somatic mutation theory of clonality Cited by:
