Development, morphology, dry mass accumulation and chemical composition of Spartina pectinata Link. at controlled water level under marshy conditions
AbstractSpartina pectinata Link (prairie cordgrass) is a plant that can grow in a wide range of environmental conditions. The aim of this study was to describe the development, morphological traits, dry mass accumulation and chemical composition of this plant in container cultivation under marshy conditions. The water level was at the same level as the ground surface. Based on the test results it can be concluded that Spartina pectinata can grow under wetlands and confined space conditions. However, such a research environment causes that the density of shoots per 1 m2 was at the end of vegetation from 155 to 888 units, and the diameter of shoots was around 3 mm. The appearance of new shoots was observed during the entire vegetation period. Prairie cordgrass produced more and more shoots and inflorescences every year, as well as more and more underground and aboveground mass of plants. The ratio of shoots to roots and rhizomes was 1:1.48.
