that endophyte infection did not increase drought tolerance ( Vázquez-de-Aldana et al., 2013 ). Here we have determined the effect of drought stress, heat stress, and the combination of heat + drought stress on TQ, RWC, Fv/Fm, chlorophyll content, EL

transpirational water loss, increasing water uptake, and/or adjusting osmotically to maintain photosynthesis and other metabolic functions ( Bonos and Murphy, 1999 ; Qian and Fry, 1997 ; White et al., 1992 ; Zhang and Schmidt, 1999 ). Heat tolerance in

. (2006) compared the photosynthetic performance of two tall fescue genotypes known to have differing levels of heat tolerance. In this study, ‘Jaguar 3’ (heat-tolerant) and ‘TF 66’ (heat-sensitive) were heat-stressed in growth chambers with day

. (2001) indicated that CTD is a good criterion for screening heat stress tolerance in wheat under field conditions. CSI is another physiological parameter that gained importance to study drought and high temperature tolerance in plants ( Sairam et al

roles in heat tolerance. In creeping bentgrass, cultivar differences in heat tolerance were shown to be associated with variations in antioxidant enzyme activities ( Liu and Huang, 2000 ). Park et al. (1997) showed that after heat shock (and expression
