Grasses & Acid Rain: need suggestions

Dear Plant-edders,

I have another request for suggestions for a General Biology research team.
I have a group who wants to investigate the effects of acid rain on grass.
(Why grasses I don't know, but I like to let them go where they're
interested).    Their idea is to compare the effects of acid rain on grass
from an area with acid rain to that from an area without acid rain.  I
don't really want to send for grasses from all around the country, and I'm
not sure much has been done with grass species in relation to acid rain.
Does anyone know anything about grasses and pH?  Could you suggest species
or varieties that might differ in their sensitivity to acidity (and that
might be available in a garden supply store in Minneapolis/St.Paul?)

Thanks,
