Gay Austin, Angelique Petterson and Jeff Hovermale cooperated toi organize these USFS R2 native grass genetic gels. Thanks to the following for collecting the seed for these tests:

Gay Austin (GMUG), Charlie Bradshaw (Medicine-Bow/Routt), Curry Caputo (Routt), Dave Bradford (GMUG), Dean Erhard (Rio Grande), Jeff Hovermale and professional collection support (Pike's Peak), Kathleen Phelps (White River), Kathy Darrow (GMUG), Leslie Stewart (San Juan), Monica Mellaci (Pike/San Isabel), S. Clarke (GMUG), S. Parker (GMUG), S. Thompson (GMUG), Vinny Rossignol (GMUG), and Wendy Haas (Routt).


These show the relationships of four populations of Festuca from Gunnison NF:
(left to right):
58. Festuca thurberi.. elev. 9,720 ft. Sawtooth Mtn.
57. Festuca thurberi.. elev. 9,000 ft. Brush creek.
56. Festuca thurberi.. elev. 9,920 ft. Crested Butte.
55. Festuca arizonica. elev. 9,720 ft. Sawtooth Mtn.
