    im not sure if this will help you out at all or not, but below is a link to a turfgrass class i am taking. Im pursuing a degree in turfgrass science, and my professor puts all his notes he teaches up on the web. if you click on one of the lectures he has a nice table that lists most cool and warm season grasses, and what they are best used for and adaptations and such. check it out.

    I know you may have already checked it out but the library has quite a few books on different types.
