This book provides a solution to all those who are interested in selecting the right zoysiagass genotypes that will be suitable for their lawns or sports fields in the regions that experience few hours of direct sunlight, shade, or frost. It has a complete data that will be a guideline to the user as one goes through the selection process. It also has some of the data that would be very important to researchers who may be interested in further research in the areas of shade and freeze tolerance. The information on the investigations on zoysiagrass tolerance to freeze conditions in highly detailed and has covered all the possible ways of investigating freeze tolerance, ranging from basic to field research. This book would also be of great interest to any other plant scientist who may be involved in both physiology and biochemistry behind stress tolerance of landscape plants especially in the role of proteins species such as chitinase and Dehydrins in stress tolerance.
