The perennial fescue, Festuca ovina
, indicates lead in the soil; it merely tolerates it.
Blue Festuca ovina
Glauca is slow-growing and especially suitable for pots.
Estimates of log ratios of species Holcus lanatus (Hl) with the grass species Anthoxanthum odoratum (Ao), Agrostis tenuis (At), Deschampsia flexuosa (Df), and Festuca ovina (Fo) obtained from the log ratio regression analysis of the goat selection data in which zero bites were either: omitted from the analyses; substituted by the values 1, 0.
Estimates of the relative preferences for the grass species Holcus lanatus (Hl), Anthoxanthum odoratum (Ao), Agrostis tenuis (At), Deschampsia flexuosa (Df), and Festuca ovina (Fo) obtained from the log ratio regression analysis of the goat selection data in which zero bites were handled by treating them as censored observations: (A) Log ratios for all pairs, constructed from the estimates of Holcus lanatus with all other species (Table 4), using the relationships log([p.
In front of the roses, there is a row of Festuca ovina
glauca 'Golden Toupee.
Piper (1906) recognized this in stating that "Perhaps no other species of grass is so polymorphous as Festuca ovina
The most abundant grasses were Festuca ovina, Agrostis vinealis, and Anthoxanthum odoratum.
These responses were to a large extent due to changes in vigor and abundance of the dominant Festuca ovina, and were characterized by a peak in cover in highly fertilized, undisturbed conditions (80-100%), which fell to a minimum of [approximately equal to]30% in highly disturbed subplots.
If [TABULAR DATA FOR TABLE 3 OMITTED] we first consider the indigenous species it is clear that Festuca ovina is a dominant species across all experimental treatments.
Holcus lanatus, Cerastium fontanum, and Cynosurus cristatus) have established large populations; we predict that many of the indigenous species (and Festuca ovina in particular) will decline in abundance with time in these conditions.
Additional endophyte-infected cultivars, belong to the Festuca ovina
