The conservation of cultivated plants in ex-situ collections is essential for the optimal management and use of their genetic resources. For the olive tree, two world germplasm banks (OWGB) are presently established, in Córdoba (Spain) and Marrakech (Morocco). This latter was recently founded and includes 561 accessions from 14 Mediterranean countries.(More)
The efficacy of two algal saccharides, glucuronan and oligoglucuronans (average degree of polymerization = 3), against postharvest blue mold (Penicillium expansum) and gray mold (Botrytis cinerea) on apple fruit (Malus domestica Borkh. cv Golden Delicious) and the related-defense responses involved were evaluated. The severity of both blue and gray mold in(More)
The present investigation was undertaken to characterise and to distinguish four contrasting Argania spinosa ecotypes in terms of drought tolerance by exploring the changes of leaf water status, osmoregulation and secondary metabolism. A. spinosa plants corresponding to four contrasting ecotypes (Lks, Alz, Rab and Adm) were subjected to drought stress. The(More)
In this paper, we report on morphological diversity, ecology and flowering phenological records of an endangered and an endemic species of Morocco Pyrus mamorensis Trab. For this study, a survey was undertaken in North-Western Morocco (Mamora forest and Zaër region) whereby 67 accessions of P. mamorensis were sampled. A set of 33 genotypes of Pyrus spp.(More)
