Abstract

Agropyron spicatum (Pursh) Scribn, and Smith, an important forage grass distributed primarily throughout western United States and northward into Canada, exhibits considerable ecological, cytological, and genetic variation. Twenty-five populations of 100 plants each were scored to obtain data on morphological and ecological variation. Statistical analysis of the data from fourteen of the populations showed that correlations between awn divergence and length, rhizomes with number of culms, adn diameter with number of culms were inconsistent or not significant. However, the correltion between rhizomes and diameter was significant in all populations.
