)]. As an important warm-season turfgrass, there have been many studies on P. vaginatum , such as salt tolerance, drought resistance, and cadmium tolerance ( Chen et al., 2012 ; Wu et al., 2015 ; Xie and Lu, 2004 ; Xu et al., 2018 ). However, there

Seashore paspalum is a notable warm-season turfgrass that survives in coastal areas between latitudes 30°N and 30°S worldwide ( Liu et al., 1994 ). When the average temperature is less than 10 to 15.5 °C, this grass becomes dormant and loses its

Zoysiagrass ( Zoysia spp.) is a common warm-season turfgrass well adapted in use of lawns and golf courses in many regions because of its excellent heat tolerance, density, low pesticide requirements, and minimal maintenance inputs ( Patton et al

In the United States, zoysiagrass refers to two perennial species from the genus Zoysia ( Z. japonica and Z. matrella ) that are used as a warm-season turfgrass for lawns, parks, and golfing surfaces (tees, fairways, roughs, bunker faces) in the

The most common warm-season turfgrasses for golf course fairways and tees in the United States are bermudagrass and secondly zoysiagrass ( Trappe et al., 2011 ). The increasing popularity and availability of zoysiagrass cultivars have enabled

A simple marker technique called sequence-related amplified polymorphism (SRAP) provides a useful tool for estimation of genetic diversity and phenetic relationships in natural and domesticated populations. Previous studies and our initial screen showed SRAP is highly polymorphic and more informative when compared to AFLP, RAPD and SSR markers. In this study, applicability of the SRAP markers to obtain an overview of genetic diversity and phenetic relationships present among cool-season (C3) and warm-season (C4) turfgrass species and their relationship with other Gramineae species were tested. Phenetic trees based on genetic similarities (UPGMA, N-J) were consistent with known taxonomic relationships. In some cases, well-supported relationships as well as evidence by genetic reticulation could be inferred. There was widespread genetic variation among C3 and C4 turfgrass species. In Dice based cophenetic matrix, genetic similarities among all species studied ranged from 0.08 to 0.94, whereas in Jaccard based cophenetic matrix, genetic similarities ranged from 0.05 to 0.85. C3 and C4 species were clearly distinguishable and a close relationship between italian ryegrass and tall fescue were obtained based on SRAP. Genome structures of turfgrasses are comparable to other Gramineae species. This research indicates that the SRAP markers are useful for estimating genetic relationships in a wide range of turfgrass species. The SRAP markers identified in this study can provide a useful reference for future turfgrass breeding efforts.
