Mesophyll diffusion conductance to CO2: an unappreciated central player in photosynthesis.
Mesophyll diffusion conductance to CO(2) is a key photosynthetic trait that has been studied intensively in the past years. The intention of the present review is to update knowledge of g(m), andExpand

Improving water use efficiency in grapevines: potential physiological targets for biotechnological improvement.
Improving water use efficiency (WUE) in grapevines is essential for vineyard sustainability under the increasing aridity induced by global climate change. WUE reflects the ratio between the carbonExpand

A putative role for TIP and PIP aquaporins in dynamics of leaf hydraulic and stomatal conductances in grapevine under water stress and re-watering.
We examined the role of aquaporins (AQPs) in regulating leaf hydraulic conductance (Kleaf ) in Vitis vinifera L. (cv Chardonnay) by studying effects of AQP inhibitors, and AQP gene expression duringExpand

From leaf to whole-plant water use efficiency (WUE) in complex canopies: Limitations of leaf WUE as a selection target
Plant water use efficiency (WUE) is becoming a key issue in semiarid areas, where crop production relies on the use of large volumes of water. Improving WUE is necessary for securing environmentalExpand

Aquaporin expression in response to different water stress intensities and recovery in Richter-110 (Vitis sp.): relationship with ecophysiological status
Aquaporins seem essential for the regulation of plant water status and expenses. Richter-110 is a Vitis hybrid (Vitisberlandieri × rupestris) reputed to be strongly drought-tolerant. Three irrigationExpand

Adjustments of water use efficiency by stomatal regulation during drought and recovery in the drought-adapted Vitis hybrid Richter-110 (V. berlandieri x V. rupestris).
The hybrid Richter-110 (Vitis berlandieri x Vitis rupestris) (R-110) has the reputation of being a genotype strongly adapted to drought. A study was performed with plants of R-110 subjected to waterExpand

The role of mesophyll conductance during water stress and recovery in tobacco (Nicotiana sylvestris): acclimation or limitation?
While the responses of photosynthesis to water stress have been widely studied, acclimation to sustained water stress and recovery after re-watering is poorly understood. In particular, the factorsExpand

The Péclet effect on leaf water enrichment correlates with leaf hydraulic conductance and mesophyll conductance for CO(2).
Leaf water gets isotopically enriched through transpiration, and diffusion of enriched water through the leaf depends on transpiration flow and the effective path length (L). The aim of this work wasExpand
